### Which of the following statements is true?

• A.

A trapezoid can have four equal sides.

• B.

A trapezoid can have three right angles.

• C.

The base angles of an isosceles trapezoid forms 90 degrees.

• D.

The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid bisect each other.

D. The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid bisect each other.
Explanation
The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid bisect each other because an isosceles trapezoid has two pairs of congruent angles and the diagonals connect the opposite vertices. Since the opposite angles are congruent, the diagonals divide each other into equal halves, resulting in the diagonals bisecting each other.

### How do you describe any two opposite angles in a parallelogram?

• A.

They are always congruent.

• B.

They are supplementary.

• C.

They are complementary.

• D.

They are both right angles.

A. They are always congruent.
Explanation
In a parallelogram, opposite angles are formed when two lines intersect. These opposite angles are always congruent, meaning they have the same measure. This is a property of parallelograms, and it holds true for all parallelograms regardless of their size or shape. Therefore, the correct answer is that any two opposite angles in a parallelogram are always congruent.

### The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid are represented by 4x – 47 and 2x + 31. What is the value of x?

• A.

37

• B.

39

• C.

107

• D.

109

B. 39
Explanation
The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid are congruent, meaning they have equal lengths. Therefore, we can set the two expressions representing the diagonals equal to each other and solve for x.

4x - 47 = 2x + 31

Simplifying the equation, we get:

2x = 78

Dividing both sides by 2, we find:

x = 39

Therefore, the value of x is 39.

### A cross section of a water trough is in the shape of a trapezoid with bases measuring 2 m and 6 m. What is the length of the median of the trapezoid?

• A.

2 m

• B.

4 m

• C.

5 m

• D.

8 m

B. 4 m
Explanation
The median of a trapezoid is the line segment that connects the midpoints of the two bases. In this case, the bases measure 2 m and 6 m. The midpoint of the 2 m base is 1 m, and the midpoint of the 6 m base is 3 m. Therefore, the length of the median is the difference between these two midpoints, which is 3 m - 1 m = 2 m.

### What can you say about any two consecutive angles in a parallelogram?

• A.

They are always congruent.

• B.

They are always supplementary.

• C.

They are sometimes complementary.

• D.

They are both right angles.

B. They are always supplementary.
Explanation
In a parallelogram, opposite angles are congruent. Since opposite angles are formed by intersecting lines, they are also supplementary, meaning that the sum of their measures is always 180 degrees. Therefore, any two consecutive angles in a parallelogram will always be supplementary to each other.

• A.

35°

• B.

45°

• C.

55°

• D.

90°

D. 90°
Explanation
In a rhombus, opposite angles are congruent, and all angles add up to 360°. Since a rhombus has four equal sides, its opposite angles are also equal. In the case of angle ROH in rhombus RHOM, it's one of the four equal angles, each measuring 90°, as the sum of all angles in a quadrilateral is 360°.

### Which of the following statements is true?

• A.

Every square is a rectangle.

• B.

Every rectangle is a square.

• C.

Every rhombus is a rectangle.

• D.

Every parallelogram is a rhombus.

A. Every square is a rectangle.
Explanation
The statement "Every square is a rectangle" is true because all squares have four right angles and four sides of equal length, meeting the definition of a rectangle. However, not every rectangle is a square, as rectangles can have different side lengths while squares have equal side lengths.

### In the rectangle KAYE, YO = 18 cm. Find the length of diagonal AE.

• A.

6 cm

• B.

9 cm

• C.

18 cm

• D.

36 cm

D. 36 cm
Explanation
In a rectangle, the diagonals are equal in length. Since YO is given as 18 cm and YO is a diagonal, the length of AE, which is also a diagonal, will be the same. Therefore, the length of diagonal AE is 36 cm.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Which of the following statements could be false?

• A.

The diagonals of a rectangle are congruent.

• B.

The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid are congruent.

• C.

The diagonals of a square are perpendicular and bisect each other.

• D.

The diagonals of a rhombus are congruent but not perpendicular to each other.

D. The diagonals of a rhombus are congruent but not perpendicular to each other.
Explanation
The statement "The diagonals of a rhombus are congruent but not perpendicular to each other" could be false because in a rhombus, the diagonals are always congruent and they are always perpendicular to each other.

Rate this question:

### Which of the following quadrilaterals has diagonals that do not bisect each other?

• A.

Square

• B.

Rhombus

• C.

Trapezoid

• D.

None of the above

D. None of the above
Explanation
A square has diagonals that bisect each other, dividing the square into four congruent right triangles. A rhombus also has diagonals that bisect each other, dividing the rhombus into four congruent triangles. A trapezoid, on the other hand, does not have diagonals that bisect each other. The diagonals of a trapezoid intersect each other, but they do not divide the trapezoid into congruent parts. Therefore, the correct answer is "None of the above" as none of the given quadrilaterals have diagonals that do not bisect each other.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### Which of the following conditions is not sufficient to prove that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram?

• A.

Two pairs of sides are parallel.

• B.

Two pairs of opposite sides are congruent.

• C.

Two angles are complementary.

• D.

Two diagonals bisect each other.

C. Two angles are complementary.
Explanation
If two angles are complementary in a quadrilateral, it does not necessarily mean that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. A parallelogram has opposite angles that are congruent, but this condition is not mentioned in the answer choice. Therefore, two angles being complementary is not sufficient to prove that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### What condition will make parallelogram WXYZ a rectangle?

• A.

Segment WX ≅ Segment YZ

• B.

Segment WX ∥ Segment YZ

• C.

< X is a right angle.

• D.

Segment WX and segment YZ bisect each other.

C. < X is a right angle.
Explanation
If angle X is a right angle, it means that it measures 90 degrees. In a parallelogram, opposite angles are congruent, so if one angle is 90 degrees, then all four angles in the parallelogram are 90 degrees. This makes the parallelogram a rectangle, as rectangles have four right angles. Therefore, if angle X is a right angle, parallelogram WXYZ will be a rectangle.

### The perimeter of a parallelogram is 34 cm. If a diagonal is 1 cm less than its length and 8 cm more than its width, what are the dimensions of this parallelogram?

• A.

4 cm x 13 cm

• B.

5 cm x 12 cm

• C.

6 cm x 11 cm

• D.

7 cm x 10 cm

A. 4 cm x 13 cm
Explanation
The perimeter of a parallelogram is the sum of all its sides. Let's assume the length of the parallelogram is L and the width is W. The diagonal is given as L-1, and it is also given that the diagonal is 8 cm more than the width, so we can write the equation L-1 = W+8. The perimeter is given as 34 cm, so we can write the equation 2L + 2W = 34. Solving these two equations simultaneously, we get L = 13 and W = 4. Therefore, the dimensions of the parallelogram are 4 cm x 13 cm.

• A.

75°

• B.

90°

• C.

105°

• D.

180°

C. 105°
Explanation
In a rhombus, opposite angles are equal. Since angle 2 is opposite to angle 4, and angle 4 is given as 105°, angle 2 must also be 105°.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### Which of the following statements is/are true about isosceles trapezoid?

• A.

The diagonals are congruent.

• B.

The median is parallel to the bases.

• C.

Both a and b

• D.

Neither a nor b

C. Both a and b
Explanation
An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with two sides that are congruent. This means that the diagonals, which connect the opposite vertices, will also be congruent. Additionally, the median of an isosceles trapezoid, which is a line segment connecting the midpoints of the non-parallel sides, will be parallel to the bases. Therefore, both statements a and b are true about isosceles trapezoids.

• 19.

### Two consecutive angles of a parallelogram have measures (x + 30)° and [2(x – 30)]°. What is the measure of the smaller angle?

• A.

30°

• B.

80°

• C.

100°

• D.

140°

B. 80°
Explanation
The measure of the smaller angle in a parallelogram can be found by subtracting the larger angle from 180°. In this case, the larger angle is [2(x – 30)]° and the smaller angle is (x + 30)°. Therefore, the measure of the smaller angle is [180 - 2(x – 30)]°, which simplifies to [180 - 2x + 60]° and further simplifies to [240 - 2x]°. To find the value of x, we set [240 - 2x]° equal to 80° and solve for x. This gives us x = 80, which means the measure of the smaller angle is 80°.
