1. Complete the following statements:
(a) Two line segments are congruent if ______________________________.
Solution: Two line segments are congruent if they have the same length.
(b) Among two congruent angles, one has a measure of 70o; the measure of the other angle is _____.
Solution: Among two congruent angles, one has a measure of 70o; the measure of the other angle is 70o
(c) When we write ∠A = ∠B, we actually mean.
Solution: When we write ∠A = ∠B, we actually mean m ∠A = m ∠B.
2. Give any two real-life examples for congruent shapes.
Solution: The real-life examples for congruent shapes are:
(i) Biscuit of same packets.
(ii) Size of chocolate in the same brand.

3. If ΔABC ≅ ΔFED under the correspondence ABC ↔ FED, write all the corresponding congruent parts of the triangles.
Solution: If pairs of corresponding sides and corresponding angles are equal to a triangle then two triangles are congruent.
All the corresponding congruent parts of the triangles ABC and triangle FED are,
Let us draw a rough figure according to the given question:
From above the figure, we can say that,
The part of ΔBCA that correspond to,
