Answer:

C. Segment AB is congruent to segment A'B'.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since ABC is being dilated by 1.5, it means that A'B'C will be bigger than ABC.

So, since A'B'C will be bigger than ABC, it sides  will also be bigger than the sides in ABC.

And since the sides/segments are bigger than the original, they are not congruent (congruent means equal).
