Q. 2. The image of an object placed at a point A before a plane mirror LM is seen at the point B by an observer at D as shown in Fig. Prove that the image is as far behind the mirror as the object is in front of the mirror.

Plane Mirror LM

Q. 3. ABC is an isosceles triangle with and D is a point on BC such that (Fig. 7.13) . To prove that , a student proceeded as follows:

In ∆ ABD and ∆ ACD, (Given) (because ) and Therefore, ∆ ABD ≅ ∆ ACD (AAS)

So, (CPCT) what is the defect in the above arguments?

Isosceles Triangle

Answer: It is defective to use for proving this result.

Q. 4. P is a point on the bisector of ∠ ABC. If the line through P, parallel to BA meets BC at Q, prove that BPQ is an isosceles triangle.
