This is invalid. Not because the premise isn't true, the premise is always true. But there's nothing that says when "the triangles are not congruent"

For B, if you multiplied the exponents:$\Huge{(x^5)^{\frac{1}{8}}}=x^{(5\times\frac{1}{8})}=x^{\frac{5}{8}}$

And D, that's what I explained with the hint. Not sure what the third one is yet.
