$ABCD$ is a trapezium and $AB$ parallel $CD$.$P,Q,R,S$ are the midpoint of $AB,BD,CD,AC$. $AC$ & $BD$ intersect at $O$.The area of $\triangle AOB=2019$ & $\triangle COD=2020$. Find the area of $PQRS$.

I don't understand the solution.
How the area of APQD is (3/4)ADB, PBCS is (3/4)ABC, CSR is (1/4)ACD, DQR is (1/4)DBC???
Can you please narrate the solution?

$Solution:$ Let x be the area of $BOC$ ; $(OQR) = (SOR)$ & $(POS) = (PQO)$ then,
$2(OQR) = 2(1010 - (2020+x)/4 ) = 2020 -1010 - x/2$
$2(POS) = 2 ( (2019+x)/4 - 2019/2) = x/2 + 2019/2$
Adding those 2 equations,
$2(OQR) + 2(POS)= 2020-1010- (2019/2) = 1/2$
Implies, $(PQRS) = 1/2$

There is a typo , $sorry$ :( the $2nd$ equation should be-
$2(POS) = x/2 - 2019/2$
