4. AC and BD are two chords of a circle which bisect each other. Prove that :

(i) AC and BD are diameters.
(ii) ABCD is a rectangle


AC and BD bisects each other
therefore it is a paralleogram
we know that a cyclic parallelogram is rectangle

as ∠A = ∠B=∠C=∠D=90°

there fore AC and BD are diameters

Hope this helps...........

The Brainliest Answer!
In the figure, 
As AC and BD bisect each other
Therefore, AC and BD are the diagonals of the parallelogram.
> ABCD is a parallelogram
> angle A = angle C
   angle B = angle D
But, ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
Therefore, angle A + angle C = 180 degree
                  angle B + angle D = 180 degree
> 2 angle A = 180 degree
   2 angle B = 180 degree
> angle A = 90 degree      angle B = 90 degree
So, angle A = angle B =angle C = angle D = 180 degree

Therefore, ABCD is a rectangle and diagonals AC and BD are diameters.
