Useful property: the adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary (supplementary angles are two angles that add up to 180°). So, if angle B is 90°, then A and C must also be 90° to add up to 180.

Hope it helps.


Many thanks. Very crisp explanation.

(1) Line segments AC and BD bisect one another.

(2) Angle ABC is a right angle.

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.

Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.

Both statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER one ALONE is sufficient.

EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.

Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

Why is the answer C? and not E? It can be a square and not a rectangle.


I guess square is a special rectangle. I am not sure whether we can consider like this. Thoughts



All squares are rectangles, so the answer would still be YES.hence C
