# Which of the following properties describe a trapezium?

(a) A pair of opposite sides is parallel.

(b) The diagonals bisect each other.

(c) The diagonals are perpendicular to each other.

(d) The diagonals are equal.

**Solution:**

We have to find the properties that describe a trapezium.

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

The opposite parallel sides are referred to as the base and the non-parallel sides are referred to as legs of the trapezium.

The diagonals intersect each other.

Therefore, in a trapezium a pair of opposite sides are parallel.
