# Identify the shapes given below. Check whether they are symmetrical or not. Draw the line of symmetry as well.

**Solution:**

We will be using the concepts of the line of symmetry to solve this.

(a) The given symmetric figure is a lock in which the vertical line ‘l’ is the line of symmetry.

(b) The given figure is a symmetrical bucket in which the vertical line ‘l’ is the line of symmetry.

(c) The given figure is not symmetrical as line of symmetry does not exist.

(d) The given figure is a symmetric telephone in which vertical line l is called the line of symmetry.

(e) The given figure is symmetrical. Horizontal line l is the line of symmetry.

(f) The given figure is symmetrical. Vertical line l is its line of symmetry.
