Q : 3 In each figure alongside, a letter of the alphabet is shown along with a vertical line. Take the mirror image of the letter in the given line. Find which letters look the same after reflection (i.e. which letters look the same in the image) and which do not. Can you guess why?
Try for
Mirror images for the given figures are shown as follows:
So, from the above-drawn figures, we can say that the figures having the vertical line of symmetry will have the same mirror images and the letters are:
O, M, H, T, V, X
Thus, the mirror images of these letters will look the same.

View Full Answer(1)If you are 100 cm in front of a mirror, where does your image appear to be? If you move towards the mirror, how does your image move?
The image appears to be 200 cm away from us, i.e., 100 cm on the other of the mirror.
And if we move towards the mirror, the image moves closer to us and to the mirror, but the size remains the same.

Q: 6 Trace each figure and draw the lines of symmetry if any:
(a) The given figure is asymmetrical. Hence, there is no possibility of the line of symmetry.
(b) By observation, the given figure has two squares having a common vertex.
Hence, there are two lines of symmetry possible.
(c) By observation, the given figure has two squares with a common centre.
Hence, the given figure will have four lines of symmetry.
(d) By observation, the given is octagonal.
Hence, it will have two lines of symmetry.
(e) By observation, the given figure is not any specific.
Hence, It will have only one line of symmetry.
(f) Here, we can observe that the given figure is a four-cornered figure.
Hence, it will have four lines 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.)
(a) Triangle with only one line of symmetry is the horizontal line of symmetry and no vertical line of symmetry.
