Read the steps Sasha wrote to construct triangle APQ congruent to triangle GHN. Use a ruler to construct a segment AP congruent to segment GH. Adjust the width of the compass to half the length of GN and draw an arc from point A. Adjust the width of the compass to half the length of HN and draw an arc from point P intersecting the first arc. Label the intersection point Q. Use a straight edge to draw lines to connect the three points. Which statement about the steps Sasha wrote for the construction of the triangle DEF is true?

Steps 2 and 3 are incorrect because the arcs were drawn using incorrect lengths. It is incomplete because one step of measuring the side lengths of triangle GHN was not included. All the steps are correct because segments in triangle APQ are congruent to the segments in triangle GHN. All the steps are incorrect because none of the segments in triangle APQ is congruent to segments in triangle GHN.
