Solution

The correct option is D

Corresponding angles are equal.


If two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal:

(i) alternate interior angles are equal i.e., 2=8 and 3=5

(ii) alternate exterior angles are equal i.e., 1=7 and 4=6

(iii) corresponding angles are equal i.e., 1=5,4=8,2=6 and 3=7

(iv) co-interior angles are supplementary i.e., 2+5=180 and 3+8=180

A line can be constructed parallel to a given line by making any of the above mentioned pairs of angles equal.

Hence, using the equal corresponding angles concept, parallel lines can be constructed.
