    I have posted the question correctly but there is some problem in the forum what is why it is showing Princeton Review instead of P R.

    Lolz, this is a funny one

    The answer should be (A)

    Using 1
    If the 3 sides of a triangle are equal, then by SSS (side,side,side) the 2 triangles are congruent
    we do not need to know much about the angles

    Using 2
    If the 3 angles have the same angle, then by AAA (angle, angle, angle) the 2 triangles are similar, but the area may be different
