(A) I only
(B) II only

(D) II and III only
(E) I, II and III


From the diagram, we see that a = d and b = e, and thus a + b = d + e.

Thus, I is true.

We see that Roman numeral II need not be true if we take, for instance, c = f = 20 and a = b = d = e = 80.

Roman numeral III need not be true either, because if it were, since b = e, we would have a + b = b + f, which implies a = f. We can take values for a, b, c, d, e, and f where a is not equal to f to see that this equality could fail.

Answer: A
