**Exercise 6.1**

**Multiple Choice Questions (Q. No. 7-12)**

**Question. 7** In Δ*ABC *and Δ*DEF, *∠*B = **∠E,* ∠F = *∠C* and *AB* = 3*DE* then, the two triangles are

(a) congruent but not similar

(b) similar but not** **congruent

(c) neither congruent nor similar

(d) congruent as well as similar

**Answer. (b) **

**Explanation: **

Here, two triangles D*ABC* and D*DEF* do not satisfy any rule of congruency, (SAS, ASA, SSS), so both are not congruent.

**Answer. (a)*** *

**Explanation: **

**Question. 9** If Δ*ABC* ~ Δ*DFE, ∠**A = *30°, ∠*C *= 50°, *AB* = 5cm, *AC *= 8cm and *DF *= 7.5cm. Then, which of the following is true?

(a) *DE *=12cm, ∠*F* =50°

(b) *DE* =12cm, ∠*F* =100°

(*c*) *EF *=12cm, ∠*D* =100°

(d) *EF *=12cm, ∠*D *=30°

**Answer. (b) **

**Explanation: **

**Answer. (c) **

**Explanation: **

And, angle formed by DE and FD is ∠D.

So, ∠B = ∠D

⟹ DABC ~ DEDF (By SAS criterion)

**Answer. (a) **

**Explanation: **

As the ratio of area of two similar triangles is equal to the ratio of square of their corresponding sides.

Therefore, we get:

**Question. 12 **If *S* is a point on side *PQ* of a Δ*PQR *such that *PS *= *QS* = *RS*, then

(a) *PR .* QR = *RS*^{2}

(b) *QS*^{2} + *RS*^{2} *=QR*^{2}

(c) *PP*^{2} + *QP*^{2 }= *PQ*^{2}

(d) *PS*^{2} + *RS*^{2} = *PR*^{2}

**Answer. (c) **
