An altitude is a line that goes through a vertex of the triangle and is perpendicular to the opposite side. This means that line AD is an altitude of triangle ABC.
An angle bisector is a line that cuts an angle in half. So segment AB is an angle bisector of the angle DAC.
A median is a line that extends from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side of a triangle. Therefore segment BG is a median of triangle EBC.
A perpendicular bisector is a line that extends from the midpoint of a triangle side at right angles. Therefore, segment GF is a perpendicular bisector of triangle BFC.
Segment AD is an altitude of triangle ABC, segment AB is an angle bisector of the angle DAC, segment BG is a median of triangle EBC, segment GF is a perpendicular bisector of triangle BFC.
