    (a) line

    This is also called "reflection symmetry". It means that one half of an object is the reflection of the other half. Examples include people and animals. The shapes in the picture below also have line symmetry.

    (b) point
    This is also called "origin symmetry". It is actually a rotational symmetry of 180°. For every point in the ...
