The correct answer is:B) A segment congruent.Explanation:place the compass on point C and draw an arc to intersect the rays gives us another point on the beam. This also creates a line segment on the ray. Since the bar is the width of the segment AB when you draw the arc, this means that the new segment-ray C will also be the width of the segment AB. In practice, this means we have copied the line segment.
