Solution: Question 2.
ABCD is a trapezium in which AB and CD are parallel. Prove by vector methods, that the mid points of the sides AB, CD and the intersection of the diagonals are collinear.
Solution:    ⇒ M, P, N are collinear
Hence the midpoints of parallel sides of a trapezium and the point of intersection of the diagonals are collinear. Question 3.
In a quadrilateral ABCD, if the midpoints of one pair of opposite sides and the point of intersection of the diagonals are collinear, using vector methods, prove that the quadrilateral ABCD is a trapezium.
Solution:  III.
