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   \LARGE O E M N P H L T S V X

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.

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: 2    For the given figure, which one is the mirror line, \small l_1 or  \small l_2?

        

From the figure we can say that line  is the mirror line. Because, when the figure is completely folded about the line  then the left part is covered by the right part completely.

Q : 1    List any four symmetrical objects from your home or school. 

Examples of symmetrical objects that we use in our home or school are as follows: Book, DVD, spectacles, compass, etc.

7. Can we have a rotational symmetry of order more than 1 whose angle of rotation is:

            (i)\: 45^{o}?                 (ii)\: 17^{o}?

We can observe that the angle of rotation is the factor of ,then it will have rotational symmetry of order more than 1. (i)  is a factor of  so the figure having its angle of rotation as  will have rotational symmetry of order more than 1. (ii) is not a factor of  so the figure having its angle of rotation as  will not have rotational symmetry of order more than 1.

6.  After rotating by  60^{0}  about a centre, a figure looks exactly the same as its original position. At what other angles will this happen for the figure?

 After rotating by    about a centre, a figure looks exactly the same as its original position, then it will look symmetrical on rotating by  All angles are multiples of .
