(2) Diagonals of quadrilateral ABCD bisect each other. statement 1 is insufficient alone, as the quadrilateral can be a square as well as a rectangle ( as per given info) statement 2 is also insufficient alone as the quadrilateral can be a square as well as a rectangle ( as per given info) combining statement will also not help in solving the problem as both square and rectangle satisfy the condition. Hence E DONT FORGET TO KUDOS

(it has bisecting diagonals and for that matter statement 1 is also true for a rohmbus.

If you join the midpoints of side of this rhombus, the parallelogram so formed will not be a rhombus as all four sides will not be equal. Only opposite sides will be equal
