Solution

The correct option is A larger than
Scale factor basically defines the ratio between the sides of the constructed triangle to that of the original triangle. So when we see the scale factor is greater than 1, it means the sides of the constructed triangle is larger than the original triangle i.e. the triangle constructed is larger than the original triangle. Similarly, if scale factor is less than 1 then the sides of the constructed triangle is smaller than that of the original triangle i.e. the constructed triangle is smaller than the original triangle. And when we have scale factor equal to 1, then the sides of both the constructed triangle and that of the original triangle is equal.
