To do:

We have to complete the figures in the squared paper such that the resulting figure has two dotted lines as two lines of symmetry.

Solution:

Symmetry :

When an image looks identical to the original image after the shape is turned or flipped, then it is called symmetry.

Line of Symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two symmetrical parts in such a way that the figure on one side is the mirror image of the figure on the other side.

We can complete the figures by drawing similar parts as given in the figures. First, draw a similar part about the vertical line of symmetry and then about the horizontal line of symmetry or vice versa.

Therefore,

To make the dotted lines the lines of symmetry the given figures are drawn as follows:

(a) 

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

(f)
