Question 7 (Choice - 2) In the given figure, AD = 2cm, BD = 3 cm, AE = 3.5 cm and AC = 7 cm. Is DE parallel to BC ? Here, 𝑨𝑫/𝑫𝑩=𝟐/πŸ‘ 𝑨𝑬/𝑬π‘ͺ= 𝐴𝐸/(𝐴𝐢 βˆ’ 𝐴𝐸) =3.5/(7 βˆ’ 3.5) =3.5/3.5=𝟏 Since 𝑨𝑫/𝑫𝑩 β‰  𝑨𝑬/𝑬π‘ͺ ∴ Ratio of the two sides is not same, So, we cannot use Basic Proportionality Theorem ∴ DE is not parallel to BC
