What is the area of a parallelogram with an angle 45 degrees, height 4 cm and a diagonal 5 cm?

Can you please tell me if questions like these would come in GMAT?

the parrallelogram abcd . with bd = 5
by pyhtagoras ab = ae + eb . e is the point where perpendicular from c intersects ab. ae = 4 as the angle is 45 . eb = (5^2-4^2)^.5 = 3
so ab 4+ 3 = 7 .

area 7*4 = 28
