It is given that

ABCD is a parallelogram in which diagonals AC and BD intersect each other

At the point O, P is the midpoint of AD

Join OP

To find: (i) PQ || AB (ii) PQ = ½ CD \

Proof:

(i) In parallelogram diagonals bisect each other

BO = OD

Here O is the mid-point of BD

In Δ ABD

P and O is the midpoint of AD and BD

PO || AB and PO = ½ AB ….. (1)

Hence, it is proved that PO || AB.

(ii) ABCD is a parallelogram

AB = CD ……. (2)

Using both (1) and (2)

PO = ½ CD
