#### Solution 1

The given triangles are not similar as the corresponding sides are not proportional.

#### Solution 2

In ΔLMP and ΔDEF, we have

LM = 2.7, MP = 2, LP = 3, EF = 5, DE = 4, DF = 6

MP/DE = 2/4 = 1/2

PL/DF = 3/6 = 1/2

LM/EF= 2.7/5 = 27/50

Here, MP/DE = PL/DF ≠ LM/EF

Hence, ΔLMP and ΔDEF are not similar.
