1. From the given diagram below, what can be said about two triangles ABC and PQR?

a) Triangles ABC and PQR are not congruent
b) Triangles ABC and PQR are congruent
c) AB = QR
d) ∠A = ∠R
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: We can see that AB = PQ, ∠A = ∠P and BC = QR (All these things are given in the diagram).
Therefore, according to SAS (Side-Angle-Side) congruent rule, triangles ABC and PQR are congruent.
