    Given vertices of the parallelogram are A(-2,-1), B(1, 0), C(p,3) and D(1,q).

    Let M(x,y) be the midpoint of the diagonals of the parallelogram ABCD.

    Diagonals AC and BD bisect each other at M.

    When M is the midpoint of AC

    By midpoint formula,

    x = (-2+p)/2 = (p-2)/2 ..(i)

    y = (-1+3)/2 = 2/2 = 1 ..(ii)

    When M is the midpoint of BD

    By midpoint formula,

    x = (1+1)/2 = 2/2 = 1 ..(iii)

    y = (q+0)/2 = q/2 ..(iv)

    Equating (i) and (iii), we get

    (p-2)/2 = 1

    p-2 = 2

    p = 2+2 = 4

    Equating (i2) and (iv), we get

    q/2 = 1

    q = 2

    Hence the value of p and q are 4 and 2 respectively.
