Bunuel! for correcting it.
Is quadrilateral ABCD a parallelogram?
Stat1: All four internal angles of ABCD are equal.
if 4 internal angles are equal, then ABCD will be square or rectangle. In both cases, it will be a parallelogram.
SufficientSTat2: AC, a diagonal of ABCD, divides ABCD into two congruent triangles.
It can be KITE . So, it is a not parallelogram.
Not SufficientSo, I think A. Hi
TarunKumar1234,
You have written for statement 2: "It can be KITE . So, it is a not parallelogram.
Not Sufficient".
There are two fundamental flaws here.
The first one: If
only a kite satisfies the statement 2 criteria, then only 1 case is possible and it's not a parallelogram. Hence, the statement 2 alone should be sufficient to say that it's not a parallelogram.
However, the cases that satisfy the requirements for statement 2 are: a kite, a parallelogram, a rhombus, a rectangle and a square. So, statement 2 alone is not sufficient because of the possibility of a kite case. All other cases (except kite) are a parallelogram.
So, statement 2: can be a parallelogram or cannot be a parallelogram. Statement 2 alone is not sufficient.
Second flaw is that statement 1 and statement 2 can never contradict each other. Is quadrilateral ABCD a parallelogram?
As per statement 1: Yes, it will be a parallelogram.
Statement 1 alone is sufficient to say that quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram. As per statement 2: (As you have written: "It can be KITE. So, it is a not parallelogram.
Not Sufficient" Yes, it will
NOTbe a parallelogram. Statement 2 alone is sufficient to say that quadrilateral ABCD is
NOT a parallelogram.
Here, statement 1 and statement 2 contradict each other. Hence, some logical flaw or something we missed while solving each statement independently.
Hi
Bunuel,
Please correct my understanding or if I have interpreted wrongly in this post/reply.
