# In the trapezium ABCD, the measure of ∠D is

(a) 55°

(b) 115°

(c) 135°

(d) 125°

**Solution:**

Given, ABCD is a trapezium.

We have to find the measure of ∠D.

We know that the sum of the angles on either side of the base of a trapezium are supplementary.

So, ∠A + ∠D = 180°

55° + ∠D = 180°

∠D = 180° - 55°

∠D = 125°

Therefore, the measure of angle D is 125°

**✦ Try This: **In the trapezium PQRS, the measure of angle P is 60 degrees. The measure of ∠S is (a) 55°, (b) 115°, (c) 135°, (d) 125°
