Steps for drawing a line parallel to a given line:

Step 1: Draw a line l and mark a point A on it.

Step 2: Mark a point B not lying on the line 'l'.

Step 3: Draw line segment joining points A and B.

Step 4: Draw an arc with A as the centre such that it intersects line 'l' at D and AB at E.

Step 5: Draw another arc with the same radius and B as the centre, such that it intersects AB at F.

Step 6: Draw another arc with F as the centre and distance DE as the radius.

Step 7: Mark the point of intersections of this arc and the previous arc as G.

Step 8: Draw line 'm' passing through points B and G.

Number of arcs drawn = 3
