By converse of mid-point theorem, we know that a line drawn through the mid-point of any side of a triangle and parallel to another side, bisects the third side.
In ΔABD,
EF || AB and E is the mid-point of AD.
Therefore, G will be the mid-point of DB.
As EF || AB and AB || CD,
∴ EF || CD (Two lines parallel to the same line are parallel to each other)
In ΔBCD, GF || CD and G is the mid-point of line BD. Therefore, by using converse of mid-point theorem, F is the mid-point of BC.
