    A student wrote the following sentences to prove that parallelogram ABCD has two pairs of opposite sides equal: For triangles ABD and CDB, alternate interior angle ABD is congruent to angle CDB because AB and DC are parallel lines. Similarly, alternate interior angle ADB is equal to angle CBD because AD and BC are parallel lines. DB is equal to DB by reflexive property. Therefore, triangles ABD and CDB are congruent by SAS postulate. Therefore, AB is congruent to DC and AD is congruent to BC by CPCTC. Which statement best describes a flaw in the student's proof? Angle ADB is congruent to angle CBD because they are vertical angles. Angle ADB is congruent to angle CBD because they are corresponding angles. Triangles ABD and CDB are congruent by SSS postulate. Triangles ABD and CDB are congruent by SAS postulate.

    I think it would either be C or D, but not sure
