Step 1
Given:
Two triangles are given.
Step 2
From the given figure:
A=BDE (Corresponding angles postulate)
C=BED (Corresponding angles postulate)
So,
ABCDBE (AA similarity postulate)
Option b is correct.

For fixed g, I want to find maximum b with
2 b ( 3 t 2 ( s + 1 ) + 6 t ( s + 1 ) + 3 s + 2 ) 2 g ( 6 t s + 3 t + 6 s + 2 ) 3 t s 2 + 6 t s + 3 t 3 s 2 + 3 s + 1 > 0
for some nonnegative reals t, s. Here g, b are also 0. Can it be possible to get a function f such that we get the upper bound on b as f ( g ) i.e, b < f ( g )? If one can find t, s for which b is maximum, one will get f ( g ).
