Answer:

(a) 4

(b) 4

(c) 4

(d) 1

(e) 6

(f) 4

(g) 0

(i) 3

Question 2.

Copy the triangle in each of the following figures on squared paper. In each case, draw the line(s) of symmetry, if any and identify the type of triangle. (Some of you may like to trace the figures and try

paper-folding first!)

Answer:

(a) l_{1} is the line of symmetry.

(a) l_{1} is the line of symmetry.

(b) l_{1} is the line of symmetry.

(c) No line of symmetry.

Question 3.

Complete the following table.

Answer:

Question 4.

Can you draw a triangle which has

(a) exactly one line of symmetry?

(b) exactly two lines of symmetry?

(c) exactly three lines of symmetry?

(d) no lines of symmetry?

Sketch a rough figure in each case.

Answer:

(a) Yes, Isosceles triangle

(b) No, such triangle cannot be formed.

(c) Yes, Equilateral triangle

(d) Yes, Scalene triangle

Question 5.

On a squared paper, sketch the following:

(a) 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.)
