**CBSE NCERT Solutions Chapter 6 Triangles Exercise 6.1 Question 2**

**2. Give two different examples of pair of**

**(i) similar figures (ii) non-similar figures**

**Solution:**

**(i) **Figures are said to be similar if they have same corresponding angles and their corresponding sides are proportional.

Below, we can see that rectangle ABCD is similar to rectangle EFGH because their corresponding angles are equal and their corresponding sides are proportional. Each angle is equal to 90 degrees and

Square ABCD is also similar to square EFGH because their corresponding angles are equal and their corresponding sides are proportional. Each angle is equal to 90 degrees and

**(ii) **Below, we can see that two given triangles are not similar because they do not have same corresponding angles and their corresponding sides are also not proportional.

The square ABCD is not similar to pentagon EFGHI because their shapes are not similar. There is no point of talking about equal corresponding angles and proportional corresponding sides.
