Where is the line of symmety located on a parabola?

The line of symmetry located on a parabola is right down the center. A parabola is a U shape. Depending on the direction of the parabola it either has a x axis of symmetry or y axis of symmetry. You should have two equal sides of the parabola.

Where is the axis of symmetry of a parabola located?

Parallel to the y-axis, going through the highest/lowest point of the parabola (if the parabola is negative/positive, respectively).
