    In the congruent circles, congruent chords have congruent arcs and the central angles of those arcs would be congruent. That would cause a person to think that option B is true. But ...

    Segments AB and DE are not given as chords of the circle. For all we know, the figure could be this: |dw:1377068477911:dw|

    Isn't this option a repeat of the given information? B. AB=DE

    Just check one more time: are you sure there is no diagram given and no information about the location of segments AB and DE?

    Okay, so which option is the only one we know to be true? Check to be sure you wrote option B down correctly. :)

    Can you enter option B and see what comes back without losing any points?

    If there were a diagram, we might be able to show that A is the correct option. With no diagram, there's no way to show A. Option B has to be true because it states the exact thing as the given: Given AB=DE, Then: B. AB=DE

    Could any other ones be true?

    If I had to answer at this point, I would have to choose: D. None of the above. With no diagram, this question is messed up, in my opinion.

    Okay, then if you have to select an answer now, what would it be? And, can you talk to your teacher about the problem?

    I agree. And, if the "computer" answer for the problem is A, then we will write a note of protest stating why that cannot be correct.
