the answer is (15, 25) E. It's sense that the answer is E. the shape is parallelogram send the last point to the far right

The options (5,25) is also possible condidate since this option will make a square (a type of parallelogram). Finally, (5,25), (5,5) and (15,25) all look the possible options. How do you really eliminate??

none of the given options are correct. Correct option should be (5,25)
adjacent sides are equal in length and perpendicular to each other. Hence this is a square.

I also got the answer as (5,25) but the options does not have it so we can use the midpoint method as well correct Thanks

Yup there are precisely 3 possible points a) 5,25 b) 5,5 c) 15,25 which is the answer. Hence E.

ABCD is a parallelogram on xy rectangular coordinate plane, three of the four vertices of parallelogram are (5,15) , (5,25) and (5,15). Which can be the coordinate of fourth vertex? Draw the given coordinates on the xy plane and figure out which one will "connect the dot " (5,5) falling in 4th quadrant incorrect (5,15) same point as one of the point already the parallelogram incorrect (5,25) falling in 4th quadrant incorrect (5,10) improper to draw a parallelogram incorrect (15,25) correct

By plotting the points one can easily point out the fourth vertex as (15,25) making the opposite sides parallel and equal so the right choice should be E) But I found this a bit lengthy..Is there any other way out

It need not be exact. If it takes you long, maybe you should practice it a little bit. The/another other option is plotting it in your mind.

Instead of following any rule/formula, this question is much easier if done by making a drawing on the paper. Without visualizing, it is difficult to eliminate the options.

I have got a very simple doubt i think none of the options mentioned are correct.
If we consider one of the base as A as (5,15) B as (5,15) so the distance is 11 units not by distance formula just by observation, this distance should be equal to CD given C is (5,25) hence to keep the distance of CD 11 units the X co ordinate should be either 5 or 16 and not 15..
Pls correct me if i am wrong, yes just by quick observation (15 , 25 ) is the correct answer....
But if calculating this isnt......

There is a direct formula to solve this question, ABCD is a parallelogram with consecutive vertices (X1,Y1), (X2,Y2),(X3,Y3) AND (X4,Y4) Then Formula EQ: X1+X3=X2+X4 Y1+Y3=Y2+Y4 if three vertices are known you can find out fourth. but important is to know what are consecutive and what are opposite vertices.

Made a mistake in calculating the coordinate. Selected (5, 10) which should be (5, 5) but (5, 5) is not there the choices. So (15,25) is the answer.
