The invalid statement is 4) Segment AP is congruent to segment PQ.

We conclude that          2) Segment RB is congruent to segment CS.

Step-by-step explanation:

Hope this Helps Have an good day!!

Given, line segment AB & CD

Here, P is the midpoint of AB ⇒ AP=PB

&       Q is the midpoint of CD ⇒ CQ=QD

It is given that P is point on AB not on CD ∴ there is no relation of point P with line segment CQ.

Hence, the invalid statement is

Segment AP is congruent to segment PQ.

Now, given that R is the midpoint of AP ⇒ AR=RP

& S is the midpoint of QD ⇒ QS=SD

AB≅CD     (Given)

≅

PB ≅ CQ       (∵from midpoint statements)

∵ PA=QD ⇒ PR=QS

Because    PB≅CQ

PB+PR≅CQ+QS

⇒               RB≅CS

Therefore, Segment RB is congruent to segment CS
