Solution

Steps of construction:
1. With center O and any radius, draw a circle
2. Draw two chords AB and CD.
3. With center A and radius more than `1/2`AB ,draw arcs, one on each side of AB
4. With center B and same radius draw arcs cutting previous arcs at P and Q respectively.
5. Join PQ
6. With center D and radius more than `1/2` DC draw arcs, one on each side of DC
7. With center C and same radius, draw arcs cutting previous arcs at R and S respectively
8. Join RS
Both perpendicular bisector PQ and RS intersect each other at the center O of he circle.
