Still cant understand how to interpret stmt 1. I seem to get E. Can someone explain stmt 1 in detail plz ?
Ok .. This is how it is. Very simple. I was so dump not to get it..
We want to see if Given info is suff to prove QS = PR.
Let us take BQSA & PADR.
St 1 : BQ = CR = DG = AP
BQ = PA (St 1)
BA = AD (Sides of a sqare.. )
RD = CD-CR
AS = AD - SD.
But CR = SD (St 1)
AD = CD (Sides of a sqare.. )
hence RD = AS.
3 sides are congruent => 4th Side is Congruent.. Hence St 1 is sufficeint..
Hope this helps..
Caveat : Can we say if 3 sides of 2 quadrilateral are congruent then they are congruent. Could someone point me to some references.
