the answer is false

If the hypotenuse and one leg of a right angled triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of another right angled triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.

Neither. A theorem is a proven mathematical statement. This says nothing about how easily it can be proven. e.g. the Pythagorean Theorem is easily proven, but Fermat's Last Theorem is extremely difficult to prove.

52 + 122 = 25 + 144 = 169 = 132 This calculation confirms that the three sides of length 5, 12 and 13 cm form a right angled triangle with the side of length 13cm being the hypotenuse.

It is like a postulate, not a thereom. A postulate is accepted to be true by not for sure. A theroem can be proven to be true.

it is used in triangles and it is a2 + b2 = c2a being the short legb being the long legc being the hypotenuse

It involves a right triangle. If a length is missing in a right triangle, you can find it out by using the other two lengths.

Because angle angle angle does not necessarily give rise to congruent triangles - they can be similar, but non-congruent.

Cannot be determined

If the hypotenuse and one leg of a right angled triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of another right angled triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.
