1.
A polygon having eight sides is known as an ______________
 a. triangle. b. quadrilateral. c. octagon. d. pentagon.

#### Solution:

A polygon with eight sides is known as an octagon.

2.
Identify the six-sided polygon.
 a. octagon b. hexagon c. square d. pentagon

#### Solution:

Hexagon is a closed figure formed by six line segments.

So, hexagon is a six sided polygon.

3.
Which one is a four-sided polygon?

 a. Figure 1 b. Figure 2 c. Figure 3 d. Figure 4

#### Solution:

A quadrilateral is a closed figure formed by joining four line segments. So, quadrilateral is a four sided polygon.

Among the figures, Figure 2 is a four-sided polygon.

4.
Is triangle a polygon?
 a. Yes b. No

#### Solution:

A polygon is a closed figure formed by joining line segments that do not cross.

A triangle is a closed figure formed by joining line segments that do not cross.

So, triangle is a three sided polygon.

5.
A __________ is a closed figure formed by joining three or more line segments.
 a. plane b. circle c. line d. polygon

#### Solution:

A polygon is a closed figure formed by joining three or more line segments.

6.
Do the line segments cross in a polygon?
 a. No b. Yes

#### Solution:

A polygon is a closed plane figure formed by three or more line segments that do not cross.

So, the line segments do not cross in a polygon.

7.
Count the number of polygons in the set of figures shown.

 a. 2 b. 5 c. 3 d. 4

#### Solution:

A polygon is a closed plane figure formed by three or more line segments that do not cross.

Among the figures, 1, 2 and 5 are polygons.

So, there are 3 polygons.

8.
Identify a three-sided polygon.
 a. triangle b. rectangle c. square d. hexagon

#### Solution:

Triangle is a closed figure formed by joining three line segments.

So, triangle is a three sided polygon.

9.
Which of the figures is a three-sided polygon?

 a. Figure 1 b. Figure 2 c. Figure 3 d. Figure 4

#### Solution:

A triangle is a closed figure formed by joining three line segments. So, triangle is a three sided polygon.

Among the figures, Figure 4 is a three-sided polygon.

10.
Find the number of sides in the polygon.

 a. 6 b. 8 c. 5 d. 7

#### Solution:

Each of the line segments is called the side of the polygon.

Count the number of line segments in the figure.

The polygon has 7 sides.
