## Text Solution

Reasoning:

If two angles of one triangle are respectively equal to two angles of another triangle, then the two triangles are similar.

This may be referred to as the $$AA$$ similarity criterion for two triangles.

Steps:

In $$\Delta \rm{A B E}, \Delta \rm{C F B}$$

$$\angle B A E=\angle F C B$$ (opposite angles of a parallelogram)

$$\angle A E B=\angle F B C$$  [$$\because$$ AE || BC  and  EB is a transversal alternate angle]

$$\Rightarrow\qquad \Delta ABE \sim \Delta C F E$$ ($$AA$$criterion)
