# Which figure has the same order of rotational symmetry as a rectangle?

Rotational symmetry is the symmetry wherein the figure looks exactly the same if you rotate it about any fixed point.

## Answer: figure (a) has the same order of rotational symmetry as a rectangle.

A figure has symmetry if it can be divided into two identical pieces.

**Explanation:**

If you turn or rotate a figure about a point P, if it will still look the same from all directions, this kind of symmetry is called rotational symmetry.

The order of rotational symmetry of a rectangle is 2.

Rhombus has the rotational symmetry of order 2 and square has the rotational symmetry of order 1.
