# Which words have a vertical line of symmetry? DAD MOM NUN EYE

To determine

To choose:

The word having vertical line of symmetry

Explanation

Definition Used:

If for every point A on the figure there is a second point A on the figure for which line l is the perpendicular bisector of AA¯, then the figure has symmetry with respect to line l.

For a word vertical line from the centre of the word should be the vertical line of symmetry.

Approach:

Figure (1)

From figure (1) the point A does not have second point A for which line is the perpendicular bisector of AA¯. The word does not have a vertical line of symmetry.

Consider the word MOM.

Figure (2)

From figure (2) any point A on the word there exists a second point A for which line is the perpendicular bisector of AA¯
