  2. Hi Benz,

    I thought that you did a good job, especially on the explanation! One will immediately understand a parallelogram and quadrilateral just by looking at your work! But I also agree with the comment above, you should include more examples, in case people needs some reference to how to apply it in work, not just the definition. Keep up the good work!

  3. Hello,

    Just to comment: For Question 2, the question stated a trapezoid and not a trapezium. According to the dictionary and the internet, there is a difference between trapezoid and trapezium. In British maths, a trapezoid is a quadrilateral with no sides parallel. So is it true?

    Other than that, the rest of the answers are well constructed and easy to understand. Well done(:

  4. Hello Benz,

    I thought you did really well in explaining and constructing your answer, so keep it up XD But i found a problem; Question 2. The question stated a trapezoid and not a trapezium. According to my own knowledge, there is a difference between trapezoid and trapezium.

    So other then Question 2, the rest is well structured :)
