Given: QRST is a parallelogram. Prove: QRST is a square.

Complete the proof below by choosing the reason for line number 2 and line number 6.
Reason
Statement

1. QRST is a parallelogram.

Given

2. QRST is a rectangle


3. is a right angle
Definition of a right angle.

4.
Definition of perpendicular.

5. QRST is a rhombus
If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular, then the parallelogram is a rhombus.

6. QRST is a square


(Points : 2)
If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rectangle; If the diagonals bisect the opposite angles then the parallelogram is a square.
A rectangle has 4 right angles; A square has 4 right angles.
If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rectangle; If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular then it is a square.
If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rectangle; If a quadrilateral is both a rectangle and a rhombus, then it is a square.
