#
Number of lines of symmetry does a rectangle have_________.

Number of lines of symmetry does a rectangle have_________.

- 2
- 3
- 4
- 5

Hint:

### Lines of symmetry are the lines that cut a given figure into equal halves.

## The correct answer is: 2

### GIVEN-

Given shape = rectangle.

TO FIND-

Number of lines of symmetry for a rectangle.

SOLUTION-

We know that a rectangle has two pairs of opposite sides equal.

Hence, we can fold the rectangle vertically or horizontally to give equally measured parts of it.

FINAL ANSWER-

Option 'a' i.e. '2' is the correct answer to the given question.

When we fold the rectangle along its diagonals, we wouldn't get 2 equal parts as the adjacent sides in a rectangle are not equal.
