(1) Line segments AC and BD are perpendicular bisectors of each other.

Perpendicular bisector means it would divide the line into half and thus the quadrilateral formed by joining A,B,C,D will have equal side and that is the property of rhombus

Why the above question has the answer E while the below question has the answer D?Where I can understand the difference between option B in the both question from Bunuel clarification but I did not see any difference in the option A between both qouestion so why option A is incorrect in the above question while it is correct in the below question?

Is quadrilateral ABCD a rhombus?

(1) Line segments AC and BD are perpendicular bisectors of each other.

(2) AB = BC = CD = AD


In the Kite as Bunuel explained notice that only one diagonal is bisected while the other is not while in rhombus/square both diagonals are bisected(since, square is a special case of rhombus). So, (1) is sufficient. As far (2) is concerned it has to be rhombus any quadrilateral having equal sides is a rhombus & hence, (2) is sufficient as well.

Statement 1

No because this could simply be a rectangle- a rectangle in which the lengths are bigger than the widths

Insuff

Statement 2

Actually no- this statement is trying to trick you into assuming that all four sides are equal, in which case the statement would be sufficient. However, a kite can fit this criteria and so

Bunuel what what is the difference between saying "AC is perpendicular to BD" v "AC and BD are perpendicular bisectors"

In other problems the statement is a rhombus if it is known that "AC and BD are perpendicular bisectors."

A perpendicular bisector is a line which cuts a line segment into two equal parts at 90°.

A line segment bisector is a line which cuts a line segment into two equal parts.

A line is perpendicular to another if it meets or crosses it at right angles (90°).
