Symmetry : Symmetries of a Square

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems. ? Let S be a square, with vertices labelled (anticlockwise), 1,2,3,4. a symmetry of S is a rotation or reflection which preserves the square (although it may change the position of the vertices). Note that a symmetry is determined by its effect on the vertices.
