    Is quadrilateral ABCD a rectangle?

    (1) The diagonals (AC and BD) are perpendicular to each other
    (2) The sum of any 3 angles in the quadrilateral is 270 degrees

    What's the best way to determine whether statement 1 is sufficient?

    The easiest way to determine whether statement 1 is sufficient is to draw out possible options:



    Starting with two perpendicular diagonals that are the same length and intersect at their midpoints gives a square, which is a rectangle.

    However, changing the length and midpoints of the lines gives:



    Which is not a rectangle.
