Geometry test. Maybe simple ! Try it.

Three maybe parallel lines, AD BE CF
Two transversals, AC DF
question how many parallel
Given that AB is equal to BC and DE is not equal to EF
(“equal” = “congruent” if you like)
show that at most two of the maybe parallel lines can be parallel.
(proof by contradiction is a last resort)
