# State the property that is used in each of the following statements?

(i) If a || b, then ∠1 = ∠5

(ii) If ∠4 = ∠6, then a || b

(iii) If ∠4 + ∠5 = 180°, then a || b

**Solution:**

We use the concept of parallel lines, alternate interior angles and corresponding angles to solve the problem.

(i) If two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal, then each pair of corresponding angles are equal.

(ii) When a transversal intersects two lines such that if pair of alternate interior angles are equal then the lines are parallel.

(iii) When a transversal intersects two parallel line such that pair of interior angles on the same side of the transversal are supplementary, then the lines are parallel.
