All circles are similar because they have radius in fixed proportion.

(ii) All squares are …………… . (similar/congruent)

Solution:

All squares are similar because the ratio of corresponding sides are equal.

(iii) All …………….. triangles are similar. (isosceles/equilateral)

Solution:

All Equilateral triangles are similar because the ratio of corresponding sides are equal.

Solution:

Two polygons of the same number of sides are similar, if (a) their corresponding angles are equal and (b) their corresponding sides are proportional.
