**Question. 133 Two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are in the ratio 1 : 3. Find its angles.**

**Solution.** Let the adjacent angles of a parallelogram be x and 8c.

Then, we have x + (3 x) = 180° [adjacent angles of parallelogram are supplementary]

=> 4 x = 180°

=> x = 45°

Thus, the angles are 45°, 135°.

Hence, the angles are 45°, 135, 45°, 135°. [ opposite angles in a parallelogram are equal]

**Question. 134 Of the four quadrilaterals – square, rectangle, rhombus and trapezium-one is somewhat different from the others because of its design. Find it and give justification.**

**Solution.** In square, rectangle and rhombus, opposite sides are parallel and equal. Also, opposite angles are equal, i.e. they all are parallelograms.

But in trapezium, there is only one pair of parallel sides, i.e. it is not a parallelogram. Therefore, trapezium has different design.

**Question. 138 The adjacent angles of a parallelogram are (2x – 4)° and (3x – 1)°. Find the measures of all angles of the parallelogram.**

**Solution.** Since, the adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary.

(2 x – 4)° + (3* – 1)° = 180°

**Question. 139 The point of intersection of diagonals of a quadrilateral divides one diagonal in the ratio 1: 2. Can it be a parallelogram? Why or why not?**

**Question. 141 Two sticks each of length 5 cm are crossing each other such that they bisect each other. What shape is formed by joining their end points? Give reason.**

**Solution.** Sticks can be taken as the diagonals of a quadrilateral.

Now, since they are bisecting each other, therefore the shape formed by joining their end points will be a parallelogram.

Hence, it may be a rectangle or a square depending on the angle between the sticks.

**Question. 142 Two sticks each of length 7 cm are crossing each other such that they bisect each other at right angles. What shape is formed by joining their end points? Give reason.**

**Solution.** Sticks can be treated as the diagonals of a quadrilateral.

Now, since the diagonals (sticks) are bisecting each other at right angles, therefore the shape formed by joining their end points will be a rhombus.

**Question. 143 A playground in the town is in the form of a kite. The perimeter is 106 m. If one of its sides is 23 m, what are the lengths of other three sides?**

**Solution.** Let the length of other non-consecutive side be x cm.

Then, we have, perimeter of playground = 23 + 23+ x + x

=> 106 = 2 (23+ x)

=>46 + 2x = 106 2x = 106 – 46

=>2x = 60

=>x = 30 m

Hence, the lengths of other three sides are 23m, 30m and 30m. As a kite has two pairs of equal consecutive sides.

**Question. 183 Find maximum number of acute angles which a convex quadrilateral, a pentagon and a hexagon can have. Observe the pattern and generalise the result for any polygon.**

**Solution.** If an angle is acute, then the corresponding exterior angle is greater than 90°. Now, suppose a convex polygon has four or more acute angles. Since, the polygon is convex, all the exterior angles are positive, so the sum of the exterior angle is at least the sum of the interior angles. Now, supplementary of the four acute angles, which is greater than 4 x 90° = 360°

However, this is impossible. Since, the sum of exterior angle of a polygon must equal to 360° and cannot be greater than it. It follows that the maximum number of acute angle in convex polygon is 3.

**Question. 196 Is it possible to construct a quadrilateral ABCD in which AB = 3 cm, BC = 4 cm, CD = 5.4 cm, DA = 5.9 cm and diagonal AC = 8 cm? If not, why?**

**Solution.** No,

Given measures are AS = 3 cm, SC = 4 cm,CD = 5.4 cm,

DA = 59cmand AC = 8cm

Here, we observe that AS + SC = 3 + 4 = 7 cm and AC = 8 cm

i.e. the sum of two sides of a triangle is less than the third side, which is absurd.

Hence, we cannot construct such a quadrilateral.
