#### Solution

Let ABCD be a cyclic quadrilateral having diagonals BD and AC, intersecting each other at point O.

`angleBAD=1/2angleBOD=180^@/2=90^@` (Consider BD as a chord)

∠BCD + ∠BAD = 180° (Cyclic quadrilateral)

∠BCD = 180° − 90° = 90°

`angleADC=1/2angleAOC=1/2(180^@) = 90^@` (Considering AC as a chord)

∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180° (Cyclic quadrilateral)

90° + ∠ABC = 180°

∠ABC = 90°

Each interior angle of a cyclic quadrilateral is of 90°. Hence, it is a rectangle.
