Steps of constructions:
1. Draw a line l of any length and take a point A above it.
2. Take any point B on l and join AB.
3. Taking B as a centre and any small radius draw an arc CD.
4. With same radius and A as a center draw an arc EF which cut AB at G.
5. Measure the arc CD using compass and with same measure cut the arc EF from G to H.
6. Join the points AH and extend in both the directions, name this line as m.
7. m is the required parallel line.

- Draw a line parallel to a given line AB at a distance of 2.5 cm.
- Draw a line segment AB, take a point P below it. Through P draw a line parallel to AB using ruler and compass only.
- Draw a line AB and then construct another line parallel to AB which is 4 cm above it.
- Draw a line AB and then construct another line parallel to AB which is 3 cm below it.
- Draw a line segment AB = 6 cm. Draw a line CD parallel to AB such that distance between AB and CD is 5 cm.
- Draw two parallel lines AB and XY such that distance between them is 2 cm.
- Draw an angle ABC of 60o such that BC = 3 cm, through C draw a line parallel to AB.
- Draw a triangle ABC of any measure and hence draw a line parallel to BC through A.
- In the following triangle ABC, draw a line through B parallel to AC.
