Solved Example on Mirror Symmetry
Ques: Choose the figures that show the mirror symmetry for the given figure.
Choices:A. Figure 1
B. Both Figure 1 and Figure 2
C. Figure 2
D. None of the above
Correct Answer: C
Step 1: A figure is symmetric about a mirror if one side of the figure is mirror image of its other side of the figure.
Step 2: The mirror shown in Figure 2 divides the figure into two equal halves such that each half is the mirror image of the other.
Step 3: So, Figure 2 shows the mirror symmetry for the given figure.
