Expert Answer:



Steps of constructions:

1. Draw a line AB = 6 cm, take any point Q on it.

2. Taking Q as a center draw an arc XY.

3. Taking same radius draw two arcs from X and Y and let them intersect at P.

4. Join QP and extend.

5. On QP, take a point C such that QC = 5 cm.

6. Again from C, draw a perpendicular line CD.

7. Hence CD is parallel to AB.
