Answer:A) 4.(B) Yes.C) Scale factor = 2Step-by-step explanation:we can see from our rectangles the width of the first rectangle is 4 meters and width of our second rectangle is 8 meters. In addition to the length of the first rectangle is 12 meters and the length of second rectangle is 24 meters.Let's look at given options one by one.1. In the 1st option lengths of the rectangles are in comparison with the width of the rectangles, therefore, option 1 is not correct.2. In this option proportions are not in order.3. In this option proportions are not in order.4. We can see that the length and the width of the two rectangles are in the same proportion, hence our rectangles (polygons) are similar, and 4th option is the correct choice.We're going to find the scale factor of our fellow-rectangles by comparing the width of our both rectangles.We can see that the width of the second rectangle is 2 times the width of the first rectangle, therefore, our scale factor is 2.
