I got my maths test back last week and I was marked down on one of the questions. As you can see on the attachment, I believe that A and H are also alternate angles as the question does not specify whether we should identify interior or exterior. When I questioned my teacher about the answer, she stated that the question was only asking for interior alternate angles, as it would state if exterior alternate angles were also required. I can see what she is saying but I am concerned how I would answer this in a GCSE or exam environment. Do you think that my original answers were correct? Thank you for your help

You were correct and your teacher was incorrect.
