    Unique Triangles are Triangles that do not have an equivalent. This means there is not another triangle that has the exact dimensions or shape.

    See, in P, all the sides are equal, so here you get equivalent... So it is unique..

    In Q also, you have two sides equal, here also equal term comes, it is not unique..

    hell : In Q, two angles are equal, so it is also unique..

    In R, see two sides are equal, it is also unique...

    See, where you are getting something equal, that is unique...

    In third, R, as two sides are equal, see they are equal, so R is unique.. Yes, S is not unique as side is not equal to any other side and angle also is not equal to any other angle of triangle..
