**Answer:**

Let two adjacent angles A and B of ∥gm ABCD be 3x and 2x respectively.

Since the adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary.

∠A+∠B=180

⇒3x+2x=180o

⇒5x=180

⇒x=5180o=36

∴∠3×36o=108o

and, ∠B=2×36o=72o

Since the opposite angles are equal in a parallelgram, therefore,

∠C=∠A=108o and ∠D=∠B=72o

Hence, ∠A=108o,∠B=72o,∠C=108o and ∠D=72o
