1. b is correct. Now your math teacher has made a great gramatical error with answer A, it is also correct because of a double negative.
Read this: The property that is NOT characteristic of a parallelogram is opposite sides are not congruent.
That is true. Property that is characteristic of a parallelogram is that opposite sides are congruent.

One has to be on the lookout for double negatives.
