The correct answer is:C) X, V and S are collinear points.Explanation:Three collinear points not long ago on a similarity of the test.In order to demonstrate the similarity, we want to prove that all the angles of a triangle are congruent to all the angles of the other triangle.The property reflexive, showing an angle is congruent to itself contributes to this.The Postulate of Corresponding Angles help to show that the angles are congruent.A cross can help to prove the angle congruence.Collinear points is going to prove that the angles add up to 180°, which will not help us to demonstrate the similarity between triangles.
