# On a squared paper, sketch the following:

(а) A triangle with a horizontal line of symmetry but no vertical line of symmetry.

(b) A quadrilateral with both horizontal and vertical lines of symmetry.

(c) A quadrilateral with a horizontal line of symmetry but no vertical line of symmetry.

(d) A hexagon with exactly two lines of symmetry.

(e) A hexagon with six lines of symmetry.

(Hint: It will be helpful if you first draw the lines of symmetry and then complete the figures)

**Solution:**

We will be using the concepts of the line of symmetry to solve this.

Symmetry states that one shape is identical to the other shape when it is moved, rotated, or flipped.

(a) The figure shows an isosceles triangle with a horizontal line of symmetry but no vertical line of symmetry.

(b) Rectangle (quadrilateral) shows both the horizontal and vertical lines of symmetry.

(c) Trapezium (quadrilateral) shows the horizontal but no vertical line of symmetry.

(d) An irregular hexagon drawn below shows only two lines of symmetry.

(e) The regular hexagon shows six lines of symmetry.
