## Answer

**:**

**False.**

Given that the area of parallelogram $PQRS = 180 , \text{cm}^2$ and $QS$ is its diagonal which divides the parallelogram into two triangles of equal area.

So, the area of $\triangle SRQ = \frac{180}{2} = 90 , \text{cm}^2$.

Since $A$ is **any point on the diagonal** $QS$, the area of $\triangle ASR$ will be **less than** the area of $\triangle SRQ$.

Therefore, the area of $\triangle ASR$ cannot be $90 , \text{cm}^2$.
