\(\displaystyle\angle{A}=\angle{W}\)
\(\displaystyle\angle{Q}=\angle{Z}\)
\(\displaystyle\angle{D}=\angle{M}\)
\(\displaystyle\angle{K}=\angle{L}\)
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{A}{D}}}{{{W}{M}}}}={\frac{{{6}}}{{{4}}}}={1.5}\)
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{D}{K}}}{{{M}{L}}}}={\frac{{{8}}}{{{6}}}}={\frac{{{4}}}{{{3}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{A}{D}}}{{{W}{M}}}}\ne{\frac{{{D}{K}}}{{{M}{L}}}}\)
So, figure is no similar.

A.Tes, \(\displaystyle\triangle{M}{N}{P}\sim\triangle{V}{W}{X}\). The scale factor is ?.(Type an integer or a simplified fraction.)
B.No, because lengths of corresponding sides are not proportional.
C.Yes, \(\displaystyle\triangle{M}{N}{P}\sim\triangle{X}{V}{W}\). The scale facor is ?.(Type an integer or a simplified fraction.)
D.No, because corresponding angles are not congruent.
E.Yes, \(\displaystyle\triangle{M}{N}{P}\sim\triangle{W}{X}{V}\). The scale factor is ?.(Type an integer or a simplified fraction.)
F.Yes, \(\displaystyle\triangle{M}{N}{P}\sim\triangle{V}{X}{W}\). The scale factor is ?.(Type an integer or a simplified fraction.)
