Yes, congruent figures have to be similar

Yes, they are.

Congruent figures have exactly the same shape; you could superimpose one on the other and see only one figure. Similar figures have some points of similarity but do not have to be exactly the same.

A congruent figure.

Congruent.

A dilation would produce a similar figure.

if the angles of a figure are the same but the sides aren't, it is similiar. Congruent is angles and sides exactly the same

Similar means they are of the same shape but not necessary the same size. two figure are congruents when they are of the same shape and size. congruent figures can be similar but not similar figures aren't always congruent

i think this is something similar i could not figure out any difference

Similar.

Yes .But it depends what shape

Congruent figures are identical in dimensions and angles whereas similar figures have dimensions in proportion to congruent figures but both have exactly the same angles.
