Choose whether Figure 2 is a flip, slide or turn of Figure 1.

 a. flip b. turn c. slide d. I don′t know.

Solution:

Figure 2 is obtained by rotating the Figure 1.

So, it is a turn.

62.
Choose whether Figure 2 is a flip, turn or slide of Figure 1.

 a. I don′t know. b. slide c. turn d. flip

Solution:

Figure 1 and Figure 2 are moving in the same direction.

So, the given figure is a slide.

63.
Choose whether Figure 2 is a flip, slide, or turn of Figure 1.

 a. flip b. turn c. slide d. I don′t know.

Solution:

Figure 2 is obtained by turning over Figure 1.

So, the given figure is a flip.

64.
Is the dotted line a line of symmetry for the butterfly?

 a. No b. Yes

Solution:

Line of symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

The dotted line does not divide the butterfly into two parts, which are mirror images of each other, since the wings of the butterfly are different.

So, the dotted line is not a line of symmetry for the butterfly.

65.
Is the dotted line a line of symmetry for the snowflake?

 a. No b. Yes

Solution:

Line of symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

The dotted line does not divide the snowflake into two parts, which are mirror images of each other since the diagonal flake is on different side.

So, the dotted line is not a line of symmetry for the snowflake.

66.
Is the dotted line through the sunflower a line of symmetry?

 a. Yes b. No

Solution:

Line of symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

The dotted line divides the sunflower into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

So, the dotted line through the sunflower is a line of symmetry.

67.
"The dotted line in the picture is a line of symmetry." Is this statement correct?

 a. Yes b. No

Solution:

Line of symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

The dotted line through the figure divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

The dotted line through the figure is a line of symmetry. So, the statement is true.

68.
Is the dotted line in the figure a line of symmetry?

 a. No b. Yes

Solution:

Line of symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

The dotted line in the figure divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

So, the dotted line in the figure is a line of symmetry.

69.
Does the butterfly seem to have a line of symmetry?

 a. Yes b. No

Solution:

Line of symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

A butterfly has a natural line of symmetry as both the sides have same size, shape and detail.

So, the butterfly has a line of symmetry.

70.
Does the dotted line in the figure seem to be a line of symmetry?

 a. No b. Yes

Solution:

Line of symmetry is a line that divides the figure into two parts, which are mirror images of each other.

The flower has a symmetry.

So, the dotted line in the figure is a line of symmetry.
