# A two-dimensional object is called a shape, and a three-dimensional object is known as a ________.

A two-dimensional shape can be sketched on paper while we need proper computer software to draw three-dimensional forms.

## Answer: A two-dimensional object is called a shape, and a three-dimensional object is known as a form.

Let us go through the explanation given below.

**Explanation:**

The shape is an enclosed area of an artwork made through lines, textures, colors, or an area enclosed by other shapes such as triangles and squares. Shapes are limited to two dimensions, that is, length and width only. A shape with complete details, such as the outline of a human body is known as the positive shape. A negative shape, on the other hand, is completely opposite to a positive shape, as it lacks any detail like that in the positive shape.

A three-dimensional object is called a form. A form is more like an artist's work with different forms of art and media.

A form has similar dimensions of length and width as in shape, apart from the height, since shape lacks height while form also has height. Forms are either geometric or free-form.

As a sphere is equivalent to a form, similarly a circle becomes equivalent to the shape, thus clearly marking the difference in an example between the two.

### Thus, a two-dimensional object is called a shape, and a three-dimensional object is known as a form.
