# Copy the figure given here. Take any one diagonal as a line of symmetry and shade a few more squares to make the figure symmetric about a diagonal. Is there more than one way to do that? Will the figure be symmetric about both the diagonals?

**Solution:**

A shape or an object has symmetry if it can be divided into two identical pieces. In a symmetrical shape, one-half is the mirror image of the other half.

We use the basic concepts of symmetry to complete the given figure.

Yes, the figure has more than one line of symmetry.

Yes, the figure will be symmetric about both the diagonals.
