a) $\vec{u}+\vec{v}$ position $\vec{v}$ so that it starts at $E$. Hopefully it's clear that $\vec{u}+\vec{v}=\vec{EG}$ b) $\vec{u}\vec{v}$ flip $\vec{v}$ the other direction position $\vec{u}$ so that it starts at $H$ similar to (a) $\vec{u}\vec{v} = \vec{HF}$ can you do the remaining two?

In each case, the answer corresponds to some diagonal of the parallelogram.
