The Central Board of Secondary Education is one of the popular educational board in India. CBSE follow the NCERT curriculum to conducts its examinations for class 10 and class 12 respectively. Class 8 is one of the crucial stages in students academic life. The Practical Geometry solutions is given so that students can understand the concepts of this chapter in depth.

We require three measurements (of sides and angles) to draw a unique triangle. Since 3 measurements were enough to draw a triangle, a natural question arises whether four measurements would be sufficient to draw a unique four-sided closed figure, namely, a quadrilateral.

Some interesting facts about quadrilaterals are given below.

- Five measurements can determine a quadrilateral uniquely.
- A quadrilateral can be constructed uniquely if its two diagonals and three sides are known.
- A quadrilateral can be constructed uniquely if the lengths of its four sides and a diagonal is given.
- A quadrilateral can be constructed uniquely if its three sides and two included angles are given
- A quadrilateral can be constructed uniquely if its two adjacent sides and three angles are known.
