Q.1 Name any two figures that have both line symmetry and rotational symmetry.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Symmetry

Answer :

Equilateral triangle and square

Q.2 Draw, wherever possible, a rough sketch of
(i) a triangle with both line and rotational symmetries of order more than 1.
(ii) a triangle with only line symmetry and no rotational symmetry of order more
than 1.
(iii) a quadrilateral with a rotational symmetry of order more than 1 but not a line symmetry.
(iv) a quadrilateral with line symmetry but not a rotational symmetry of order more than 1.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Symmetry

Answer :

(i) Equilateral triangle has 3 rotational symmetries. (ii) A triangle with only line symmetry and no rotational symmetry of order more than 1 is isosceles triangle.
(iii) A quadrilateral with a rotational symmetry of order more than 1 but not a line symmetry is not possible to draw. Because, a quadrilateral with a line symmetry may have rotational symmetry of order one but not more than one.
(iv) A quadrilateral with line symmetry but not a rotational symmetry of order more than 1 is rhombus.

Q.3 If a figure has two or more lines of symmetry, should it have rotational symmetry of order more than 1?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Symmetry

Answer :

Yes. If a figure has two or more lines of symmetry, then it will have rotational symmetry of order more than 1.

Q.5 Name the quadrilaterals which have both line and rotational symmetry of order more than 1.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Symmetry

Answer :
