Answer:

Let PQRS be a parallelogram.

As the vertices lie on the circle it is a cyclic parallelogram.


In a cyclic quadrilateral opposite angle are supplementary. 

begin mathsize 12px style angle Q space plus space angle S space equals space 180 degree space minus negative negative space left parenthesis 1 right parenthesis But space in space straight a space parallelogram comma space opposite space angles space are space equal. therefore space angle straight Q space equals space angle straight S Using space in space left parenthesis 1 right parenthesis angle straight Q space plus space angle straight Q space equals space 180 degree angle straight Q space equals space 90 degree As space opposite space angles space are space equal space we space space angle straight S space equals space 90 degree Similarly comma space space angle straight P space equals space space angle straight R space equals space 90 degree straight A space parallelogram space with space right space angles space is space straight a space rectangle. But space in space straight a space rectangle space the space diagonals space are space equal.  Hence space PR space equals space QS. end style
