# The angle of rotation for the figure 12.2 is

(a) 45°

(b) 60°

(c) 90°

(d) 180°

**Solution:**

Symmetry is defined for objects or shapes which are exactly identical to each other when placed one over the other.

An object when rotated in a particular direction, around a point exactly similar to the original object, is known to have rotational symmetry.

When a geometrical shape is turned, and the shape is identical to the origin, it is known to exhibit rotational symmetry.

We know that

The angle of rotation for the square is 90°

Therefore, the angle of rotation is 90°.
