Solution

## The correct option is C 3 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
