We have drawn the two trainagles as required in the attached file.As we can see the side AB is equal to the side OF. Also we are given that angle B = angle E. Then, we know that one of the sides and an angle are equal.To be consistent, we need the other side to be equal, this could be any of the two :(i) the Segment AC ≅ Segment FD, or(ii) Segment BC ≅ Segment EFSince we have not (i) appears as any option, select the second oneSo, the answer is the Segment BC ≅ Segment EF (Option D)
