**Justify with reasons**:

**i)** Line Segments of length 10cm, 2cm, and 12 cm can't form a triangle.**ii) **Line Segments of 9cm, 10cm, and 11cm can form a right triangle.

(i) In a triangle, the sum of any two sides should be greater than the third side.

Therefore,

10 cm + 2 cm = 12 cm is equal to the third side 12 cm.

Therefore, line segments of length 10 cm, 2 cm and 12 cm cannot form a triangle.

(ii) In a right-angled triangle, the sum of the squares of two sides is equal to the square of the hypotenuse.

Given line segments are 9 cm, 10 cm and 11 cm.

$(9)^2+(10)^2=81+100=181$

$(11)^2=121$

Here, sum of the squares of two sides is not equal to the square of the third (largest) side.

Therefore, line segments of length 9 cm, 10 cm and 11 cm cannot form a right-angled triangle.
