Question:

In the figure given below, state which lines are parallel and why?

 

Solution:

Here, ∠BAC = ∠ACD = 110°

Thus, lines AB aand CD are intersected by a transversal AC such that the pair of alternate angles are equal.

∴ AB || CD     (If a transversal intersects two lines such that a pair of alternate interior angles are equal, then the two lines are parallel)

Thus, line AB is parallel to line CD.

Also, ∠ACD + ∠CDE = 110° + 80° = 190° ≠ 180°

If a transversal intersects two lines such that a pair of interior angles on the same side of the transversal are supplementary, then the two lines are parallel.

Therefore, line AC is not parallel to line DE.
