    What is the definition of "corresponding sides" ?

    If the relative position of two sides is same in two figures, then they are called Corresponding Sides

    They are proportional for similar polygons. They are equal for congruent polygons. They are connected by a vertex. They are in the same position in both similar and congruent polygons.

    These are the statements. Corresponding sides exist when you are examining/comparing polygons.

    So, option C/the third statement, does not make sense because corresponding sides by definition exist in different polygons, and therefore are not in the same polygon, therefore unconnected by a vertex
