Given this Figure Theorems Conditions for Parallelograms

Question: 3 Can a quadrilateral ABCD be a parallelogram, if:


(ii) cm, and ?



(i) Yes,

Quadrilateral ABCD be a parallelogram if ∠ D + ∠ B = 180° but it should also fulfill some conditions such as:

  • Sum of the adjacent angles should be 180°.
  • Opposite angles must be equal.


Opposite Angles of a Parallelogram Are Equal

(ii) No

In this case because one pair of opposite sides is equal and another pair of opposite sides are unequal. So, it is not a parallelogram.


Same Opposite Angle Are Equal in Parallelogram

(iv) No

because, opposite angles are equal in parallelogram and here opposite angles are not equal in quadrilateral ABCD. Therefore it is not a parallelogram.


Opposite Angles of a Parallelogram is Not Equal

Question: 4 Draw a rough figure of a quadrilateral that is not a parallelogram but has exactly two opposite angles of equal measures.


ABCD is a quadrilateral in which angles

Therefore, it could be a kite.


Quadrilateral in Which Angles Are Same

Question: 5 The measure of two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are in the ratio 3: 2. Find the measure of each of the angles of the parallelogram.


Let two adjacent angles be and .

Since the adjacent angles in a parallelogram are supplementary.


Angles in a Parallelogram Are Supplementary

One angle =

And another angle
