(i)

*a*+

*b*=

*d*+

*c*

(ii)

*a*+

*c*+

*e*= 180°

(iii)

*b*+

*f*=

*c*+

*e*

(a) (i) only

(b) (ii) only

(c) (iii) only

(d) (ii) and (iii) only

**Solution**

(i) Statement: a+b = d+c

This statement is incorrect.

Explanation: We have, a and dare vertically opposite angles.

Therefore, a=d ---(i)

Similarly, band e are vertically opposite angles.

Therefore,

b=e ---(ii)

On adding (i) and (ii), we get

a+b=d+e

Thus, this statement is incorrect.

(ii) Statement a+c+e = 180°

This statement is correct.

Explanation: As a°, f° and e° form a linear pair, therefore their sum must be supplementary.

a+f+e = 180° ---(iii)

Also f° and c° are vertically opposite angles, therefore, these must be equal.

f =c

Putting f=c in (iii), we get:

a+c+e=180°

(iii) Statement: b+ f =a+e

This statement is correct.

Explanation: As a°, f° and b° form a linear pair, therefore their sum must be supplementary.

a+ f +b=180° ---(iv)

Also c°,d° and e° form a linear pair, therefore their sum must be supplementary.

c+d+e=180° ---(v)

On comparing (iv) and (v), we get:

a+ f +b=c+d+e

Also a° and d° are vertically opposite angles, therefore, these must be equal.

Therefore,

a= d

Substituting the above equation in (vi), we get:

a+f+b = c+d+e

a+b+f = c+a+e

b+f = a+e

Thus, out of all, (ii) and (iii) are correct.
