# If ∆ ABC ≅ ∆ PQR and ∆ ABC is not congruent to ∆ RPQ, then which of the following is not true:

a. BC = PQ

b. AC = PR

c. QR = BC

d. AB = PQ

**Solution:**

It is given that

∆ ABC ≅ ∆ PQR

As corresponding sides are equal

AB = PQ

AC = PR

BC = QR

So BC = PQ is not true for the triangles.

Therefore, BC = PQ is not true.

**✦ Try This: **If ∆ PQR ≅ ∆ XYZ and ∆ PQR is not congruent to ∆ ZYX, then which of the following is not true: a. QR = XY, b. PR = XZ, c. YZ = QR, d. PQ = XY

It is given that

∆ PQR ≅ ∆ XYZ

As corresponding sides are equal

PQ = XY

PR = XZ

QR = YZ

So QR = XY is not true for the triangles.

Therefore, QR = XY is not true.
