Solution :-

(i) Let the points (- 1, – 2), (1, 0), ( – 1, 2), and ( – 3, 0) be representing the vertices A, B, C, and D of the given quadrilateral respectively.

Side length = AB = BC = CD = DA = 2\( \sqrt{2}\)

Diagonal Measure = AC = BD = 4

Therefore, the given points are the vertices of a square.

 

(ii) Let the points (- 3, 5), (3, 1), (0, 3), and ( – 1, – 4) be representing the vertices A, B, C, and D of the given quadrilateral respectively.

Its also seen that points A, B and C are collinear. So, the given points can only form 3 sides i.e, a triangle and not a quadrilateral which has 4 sides.
Therefore, the given points cannot form a general quadrilateral.

(iii) Let the points (4, 5), (7, 6), (4, 3), and (1, 2) be representing the vertices A, B, C, and D of the given quadrilateral respectively.

Opposite sides of this quadrilateral are of the same length. However, the diagonals are of different lengths. Therefore, the given points are the vertices of a parallelogram.
