2.Does Euclid’s fifth postulate imply the existence of parallel lines? Explain.
Answer :

Yes, according to Euclid’s fifth postulate when line x falls on straight line y and z such that sum of the interior angles on one side of line x is two right angles.
i.e., \(\angle{1}\) + \(\angle{2}\) = \(180^\circ\).
Then, line y and line z on producing further will meet in the side of \(\angle{1}\) and \(\angle{2}\) which is less than \(180^\circ\).

We find that the lines which are not according to Euclid’s fifth postulate. i.e., \(\angle{1}\) + \(\angle{2}\) = \(180^\circ\), do not intersect.
So, the lines y and z never meet and are, therefore, parallel.
