## PSEB Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 9 Understanding Elementary Shapes Ex 9.5

1. Which of the following are polygons and there is no polygon. Give the reason: Solution:
(i) It is not a closed figure. Therefore it is not a polygon.
(ii) It is made up of lines segment. Therefore it is polygon.
(iii) It is not a polygon, because it is not made of line segments.
(iv) It is not closed by line segment. Therefore, it is not a polygon.
(v) It is not polygon because line segments are intersecting each other.
(vi) It is made up of line segments, therefore it is a polygon. 2. Classify the following as concave or convex polygons: Solution:
(i) Concave Polygon
(ii) Convex Polygon
(iii) Concave Polygon
(iv) Concave Polygon
(v) Convex Polygon
