# Which of the following figures satisfy the following property?

- Only one pair of sides are parallel.

(a) P

(b) Q

(c) R

(d) S

**Solution:**

We have to find the figure that satisfies the given property.

Figure P represents a trapezium. A trapezium is a two-dimensional quadrilateral having a pair of parallel opposite sides.

Figure Q represents a parallelogram. A parallelogram is defined as a quadrilateral in which both pairs of opposite sides are parallel and equal.

Figure R represents a square. A square is a two-dimensional plane figure with four equal sides.

There are only two diagonals of the square and they bisect each other at right angles.

Figure S represents a rectangle. A rectangle is a closed two-dimensional figure with four sides. The opposite sides of a rectangle are equal and parallel to each other.

Therefore, figure P has one pair of parallel opposite sides.
