To do:

We have to identify which of the given pairs of angles are complementary and which are supplementary.

Solution:

Complementary angles:

Two angles are said to be complementary if the sum of their measures is $90^o$.

Supplementary angles:

Two angles are said to be supplementary if the sum of their measures is $180^o$.

Therefore,

(i) $65^{\circ}+115^{\circ}=180^{\circ}$

They are supplementary angles.

(ii) $63^{\circ}+27^{\circ}=90^{\circ}$

They are complementary angles.

(iii) $112^{\circ}+68^{\circ}=180^{\circ}$

They are supplementary angles.

(iv) $130^{\circ}+50^{\circ}=180^{\circ}$

They are supplementary angles.

(v) $45^{\circ}+45^{\circ}=90^{\circ}$

They are complementary angles.

(vi) $80^{\circ}+10^{\circ}=90^{\circ}$

They are complementary angles.
