(f) True

(g) True

(h) True

**Ex 3.4 Class 8 Maths Question 2.**

Identify all the quadrilaterals that have(a) four sides of equal length

(b) four right angles

**Solution:
**(a)

**Squares and rhombuses**have four sides of equal length.

(b)

**Rectangles and squares**have four right angles.

**Ex 3.4 Class 8 Maths Question 3.**

Explain how a square is(i) a quadrilateral

(ii) a parallelogram

(iii) a rhombus

(iv) a rectangle

**Solution:
**(i) A square is a quadrilateral because it is a
four-sided polygon.

(ii) A square is a parallelogram due to the following properties:

(a) Opposite sides are equal and parallel.

(b) Opposite angles are equal.

(iii) A square is a rhombus because its all sides are equal and opposite sides are parallel.

(iv) A square is a rectangle because its opposite sides are equal and parallel and has equal diagonals.

**Ex 3.4 Class 8 Maths Question 4.**

Name
the quadrilaterals whose diagonals(i) bisect each other

(ii) are perpendicular bisectors of each other

(iii) are equal

**Solution:****
**(i)
Parallelogram, rectangle, square and rhombus

(ii) Square and rhombus

(iii) Square and rectangle

**Ex 3.4 Class 8 Maths Question 5.**

Explain why a rectangle is a convex quadrilateral.**Solution:
**In a rectangle, both of its diagonals lie in its
interior and each of its angle measures less than 180°. Hence, a rectangle is a
convex quadrilateral.

**Ex 3.4 Class 8 Maths Question 6.**

ABC is a right-angled triangle and O is the midpoint
of the side opposite to the right angle. Explain why O is equidistant from A, B
and C. (The dotted lines are drawn additionally to help you).**Solution:
**Since the right-angled triangle ABC makes a
rectangle ABCD by the dotted lines.

Therefore, OA = OB = OC = OD [Diagonals of a rectangle are equal and bisect each other]

Hence, O is equidistant from A, B and C.
