**Exercise 15**

**Q1) Which of the following are simple closed figures?**

Soln:

- It is a simple closed figure because it does not intersect itself.
- It is a simple closed figure because it does not intersect itself.
- It is not a simple closed figure because it intersects itself.
- It is a simple closed figure because it does not intersect itself.
- It is not a simple closed figure because it intersects itself.
- It is a simple closed figure because it does not intersect itself.

**Q2) Which of the following are polygon?**

Soln:

- It is formed by four line segments and we know that a simple closed figure formed by three or more line segments is called a polygon. So it is a polygon named quadrilateral.
- It is formed by three line segments and we know that a simple closed figure formed by three or more line segments is called a polygon. So it is a polygon named triangle.
- It is formed by twelve line segments and we know that a simple closed figure formed by three or more line segments is called a polygon. So it is a polygon
- It is not a polygon because it contains curves.

**Q3) Fill in the blanks**

**(i) A polygon is a simple closed figure formed by more than _____ line segments.**

**(ii) A polygon formed by three line segments is called _____**

**(iii) A polygon formed by four line segments is called a _______**
