# Given a parallelogram ABCD. Complete each statement along with the definition or property used

(i) AD = ......

(ii) ∠ DCB = ......

(iii) OC = ......

(iv) m ∠DAB + m ∠CDA = ......

**Solution:**

(i) The opposite sides of a parallelogram are of equal length.

Thus, AD = BC

(ii) In a parallelogram, opposite angles are equal in measure

Thus, ∠DCB = ∠DAB

(iii) In a parallelogram, diagonals bisect each

Hence, OC = OA

(iv) In a parallelogram, adjacent angles are supplementary to each other.

Hence, m∠DAB + m∠CDA = 180°
