1. Draw a transversal line which intersect both lines. So angles will formed with given line and transversal

2. If alternate angles so formed are equal then lines wll parallel.

3. f corresponding angles are equal then also lines will parallel.

4. f cointerior angles are supplementry then ines will parallel.
