# What is the disadvantage in comparing line segments by mere observation?

**Solution:**

We will be using the concept of line segments to solve this.

In the given figure, line segment PQ and RS seem to be equal but actually, they are not equal.

The disadvantage of comparing the lengths of two line segments by mere observation is that the lengths might not be accurate. Hence, a divider is used to compare the lengths of the line segments.
