  2. Take a point P outside the line `l`. 
  3. As shown in the figure, place two sets-squares touching each other. Hold set - squares A and B. One edge of set-square A is close to point P. Draw a line along the edge of B.
  4. Name the line as `m`.
  5. Line `m` is parallel to line `l`.
  • Method II: Steps of construction 


  1. Draw line `l`. Take a point P outside the line.
  2. Draw a seg PM ⊥ line `l`.
  3.  Take another point N on line `l`.
  4. Draw seg NQ ⊥ line `l`. such that `l("NQ") = l("MP")`.
