**Q.**Construction of similar polygons is similar to that of construction of similar triangles. If you are asked to construct a parallelogram similar to a given parallelogram with a given scale factor, which of the given steps will help you construct a similar parallelogram?

- Find a point on the larger side which divides it in the ratio of the given scale factor and using the smaller side as the other parallel side to construct the parallelogram.
- Find two points one on the larger side and other on the smaller side using the given scale factor and use these scaled lengths to construct a similar parallelogram.
- With one of the vertices as centre and radius - (scale factor multiplied with the length of the larger side). Draw two arcs on the larger and smaller sides. Use these 2 points to construct the parallelogram.
- None of these helps in constructing a similar parallelogram.
