    Well, if you'll notice - every line there gets halved except for the middle one (HK).

    If you want two things to be similar their proportions need to be exact. Every single line is halved in the second figure except for the HK line which should've been 1.5 units, not 2 - because BE is 3 units long.

    can say that line CD and IJ are similar because it move from 2 to 4 units do same with AF and GL, but look at line BE and HK. BE is 3 units mean that HK have to be 1/2 of BE, which is 1.5 to be similar. Not 2 units because 4 lines above had prove. ( IJ = 1/2 CD, same with AF and GL) Do you understand now?

    "In my opinion, it is my utmost proficiency as a scholar of Euclidian geometry to conclude that I've witnessed a transformation in the lines of the first figure equal to one half of their original size and further projected upon the second image on all lines presented in the first figure except for one - written as BE - which did not preserve the aforementioned proportion. Due to the measurable fact that HK line is more than half of the BE line we may therefore conclude that this disproportional projection does not reflect a similar transformation and I enclose my statement that the figures are not similar.

    okay, now you do the same with BE and HK, because BE is 3 units and HK is 2 units so the figure is not similar since IJ = 1/2 CD and GF = 1/2 AF so HK SHOULD ALSO = 1/2 BE. Not 2. Do you understand?

    The slope of DE is -2 and the slope of JK is -1 so that means they are not similar right because the angles are not congruent.

    Yes. Since you calculated DE and JK and figured the slopes were different, then the slopes will be different when you calculate the rest of the segments.
