1) A - since the one of the angles is equivalent and one of the legs are equivalent as well then the entire triangle is equivalent.
2) E (I am less sure on this but think that is correct) - there just because AD and BC are parallel gives you no info on the other angles BCD and BAD can have a relationship but the other two angles could be any number of angles (with the sole constraint that the total figure must sum to 360). So it cannot be determined based on what is given.
3) I am really not sure on this one. I would assume its E - since we do not know where F is in relation to the midpoint. If its way below its greater if its near it it may be less.

Hope this helps.

1. 2 angles equal, hence 2 triangles similar. Thus, sides also equal -->
ans A
2. From the angle AH we can drop a bisector to the side BC. one of 2 anlges HAD will be x = angle DCB. As AD||BC and angle x=x, A||CD. Angle DCB = angle AHB = x --> AHB is isosceless and BH = AH = 5. AD =HC=7, hence the whole BC is 7+5 = 12
ans B
3. Lets try this for an equilateral triangle. F would be a centre of inscribed circle with radius a^2 sqrt(3) / 6. Using this we can calculate the area of the bottom triangle CFB and the area of the upper triangles ADE and AFE comprising figure ADFE. the resulting ratio CFB/ADFE = 1/2, therefore
ans C.
