Here is an explanatory diagram:

Hi...

All triangles have a side parallel to DE..
But two triangles have DE itself as that parallel side..
So the remaining 9-2 have a side parallel to DE..
Ans 7

It is really a nice Question.
Had the Question been without the word "these" & "them". The answer would be different, so see how a few words change the question.
Now tell what is answer of new question?
