# Consider the given figure and answer the questions: (a) Is it a curve? (b) Is it closed?

In closed shapes, all the lines and curves are connected with each other. Lines or curves that do not connect at any one point are called open shapes.

## Answer: The given figure is a curve and it is closed (a) Yes, the figure is a curve. (b) Yes, the figure is closed.

We will use the definition of closed shapes and open shapes to answer this question.

**Explanation:**

(a) The given is composed of two curves. So, this is a curve.

(b) In closed shapes, all the lines and curves are connected with each other. So, this is a closed shape.
