The answer depends on what is already known about the two triangles.

"What else" implies there is already something that is congruent. But since you have not bothered to share that crucial bit of information, I cannot provide a more useful answer. no correct

No, because they need not be congruent.

Nothing else, the angle-angle-side is sufficient to show the triangles are congruent. With two corresponding angles are equal, the third angles in the triangles by definition (the sum of the three angles in a triangle is 180o) must be equal making the triangles similar. If a corresponding pair of sides are also equal, then the other two corresponding pairs of sides will be equal.

Because Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles, there are five ways to prove that two triangles are congruent. Show that all sides are congruent. (SSS) Show that two sides and their common angle are congruent. (SAS) Show that two angles and their common side are congruent. (ASA) Show that two angles and one of the non common sides are congruent. (AAS) Show that the hypotenuse and one leg of a right triangle are congruent. (HL)

For a start, you would need to know what efg and jkl are.

That depends on which sides have not been proven congruent yet.
