## CAT 2018 - Slot-2 - Geometry - Question-5 - A parallelogram ABCD has area 48 sqcm

Q. 5: A parallelogram ABCD has area 48 sqcm. If the length of CD is 8 cm and that of AD is s cm, then which one of the following is necessarily true?
1. 5≤s≤7
2. s≤6
3. s≥6
4. s≠6

As the area of ABCD = 48=s×h ————1)

In right-angled triangle CKD, DK ≤ CD ( CD is hypotenuses )

So h ≤8

Thus s ≥6——-(from eq 1)
