Quadrilaterals III - Learn 5 Rhombus Properties in Just 5 Minutes

In this post, we will discuss top 5 Rhombus Properties that will help you solve questions that are asked on Quadrilaterals in SSC CGL Exam.

Kites and diamonds are objects that are in a shape of a rhombus. A rhombus is an attractive shape and often questions are asked on it in SSC Exams. Questions on rhombus from quadrilaterals can be solved easily if you know all the rhombus properties.

Before discussing rhombus properties, let's have a quick glance at our previous posts where we have discussed some special properties of a parallelogram and rectangle.

What is a Rhombus?

A rhombus is a four sided, closed shape figure. It is a special type of parallelogram where all the sides are equal.

Rhombus Properties 1:

In a rhombus, all the sides are equal to each other.
ABCD is a rhombus,
AB = BC= CD = AD

Rhombus Properties 2:

In a rhombus, opposite sides are parallel to each other.
ABCD is a rhombus,
AB//CD and AB//BC

Rhombus properties 3:

In a rhombus, diagonals bisect each other. ABCD is a rhombus where
AO = OC, BO = OD

Rhombus Properties 4:

In a rhombus, all the angles equal to 360°
∠A +  ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360

Rhombus Properties 5:

In a rhombus, diagonals bisect each other perpendicularly.
∟AOB = ∟AOC = ∟COD = ∟DOD = 90°
