Assertion: ABCD is a quadrilateral in which P, Q, R and S are the mid-points of AB, BC, CD and DA respectively.

Question:

Assertion: ABCD is a quadrilateral in which PQR and S are the mid-points of ABBCCD and DA respectively. Then, PQRS is a parallelogram.
Reason: The line segment joining the mid-points of any two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and equal to half of it.
(a) Both Assertion and Reason are true and Reason is a correct explanation of Assertion.
(b) Both Assertion and Reason are true but Reason is not a correct explanation of Assertion.
(c) Assertion is true and Reason is false.
(d) Assertion is false and Reason is true.

Solution:

(a)  Both Assertion and Reason are true and Reason is a correct explanation of Assertion.

​Explanation:
Clearly, reason (R) and assertion (A) are both true and reason (R) gives assertion (A).
Hence, the correct answer is (a).
