**(i)**

Given,

To construct, Quadrilateral DEAR

**Step of Construction: **

**(1) **A sketch of this quadrilateral can be drawn as follows.

Image:

(2) A line segment DE 4 cm and an angle of at point E. As vertex A is 5 cm away from vertex E, cut a line segment EA of 5 cm from this ray.

Image:

(3) A draw an angle of at point A. As vertex R is 4.5 cm away from vertex A, cut a line segment RA of 4.5 cm from this ray.

Image:

(4) Join D to R.

Image:

DEAR is the required quadrilateral.
