Solution

## The correct option is B None of these⇒ Let △ABP and a parallelogram ABCD be on the base AB and between the same parallels AB abd PC.⇒ Draw BQ∥AP to obtain another parallelogram ABQP and ABCD are on the same base AB and between the same parallel AB and PC.∴ ar(ABQP)=ar(ABCD) ---------- ( 1 )⇒ But △PAB ≅ △BQP [Diagonals PB divides parallelogram ABQP into two congruent triangles.]⇒ So ar(PAB)=ar(BQP) ----------- ( 2 )∴ $ar(PAB)=ar(ABQP) ----------- ( 3 ) [From ( 2 )]This gives ar(PAB)=12ar(ABCD) [From ( 1 ) and ( 3 )]⇒ So, we have prove that a triangle and a parallelogram are on same base and between the same parallel lines they don't have equal area or equal perimeter.⇒ So, correct answer is option D.
