## Text Solution

**What is Known?**

\(l\parallel m\,\,\,and\,\,\,\,p\parallel q\,\)

**To prove:**

\(\Delta {\text{ABC}} \cong \Delta {\text{CDA}}{\text{.}}\)

**Reasoning:**

We can show both the triangles congruent by using ASA congruency criterion

**Steps:**

In \(\Delta ABC\) and \(\Delta CDA\),

\(\begin{align}&\angle BAC \,\text{and}\, \angle DCA \\&\text{(Alternate interior angles, as}(p \|q)\\\\AC &= CA \text{(Common)}\\&\angle BAC \text{and} \angle DCA \\&\text{(Alternate interior angles, as} (l \|m)\\\\&\therefore\,\, \Delta ABC \cong \Delta CDA \\&\text{(By ASA congruence rule)}\end{align}\)
