# Which of the following is a property of a parallelogram?

(a) Opposite sides are parallel

(b) The diagonals bisect each other at right angles

(c) The diagonals are perpendicular to each other

(d) All angles are equal

**Solution:**

We have to find the properties that describe a parallelogram.

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

The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

The opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal.

Same-side interior angles supplement each other.

Therefore, in a parallelogram the opposite sides are parallel.
