This is because when the midpoints are connected to form the sides of the midpoint-verticed figure, each side of the original figure is bisected. Each newly formed side will be parallel to a diagonal of the original. Two of the newly formed sides are parallel to the same diagonal and therefore are parallel to each other. Along with the other two sides of the midpoint-verticed that are parallel to the other diagonal of the original, a parallelogram is formed.
