AB and CD are two equal chords of a circle with centre O , that subtend a right angle at X . P and Q are the midpoints of AB and CD respectively . Prove that OPXQ is a square .

Sorry, this question makes no sense. Have you copied it correctly?

simple question on same chords and their same distance to centre of circle.
OPXQ has 3 right angles, and then PX = QX, PO = QO, so it can only be a square.
