## Text Solution

What is Known?

Draw a figure of quadrilateral having two opposite angles of equal measure.

What is Unknown?

$$ABCD$$ is quadrilateral whose opposite angles are equal.

Reasoning:

The opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal.

Steps: In a kite, the angle between unequal sides are equal.

Draw line from $$A$$ to $$C$$ and we will get two triangles with common base $$AC$$.

In $$∆ABC$$ and $$∆ADC$$ we have,

$${\rm{AB}} = {\rm{ AD }},{\rm{ BC}} = {\rm{CD}}$$ ; $$AC$$ is common to both

$$\Delta {\rm{ABC }}\!\!\cong\!\!\Delta {\rm{ADC }}\text{[congruent triangles]}$$

Hence corresponding parts of congruent triangles are equal.

Therefore$$\angle {\rm{B}} = \angle {\rm{D}}$$

However, the quadrilateral $$ABCD$$ is not a parallelogram as the measures of the remaining pair of opposite angles, $$\angle {\rm{A}}$$ and $$\angle {\rm{C}}$$, are not equal. Since they form angle between equal sides.
