Is a rectangle cut diagonal line a symmetric figure?

The shape descibed is not a symmetric figure. If it is folded on the diagonal line described, then the corners would stick off the sides. If the question is implying that they want to fold it in a differant way, then it would not be symmetrical because of the line. The line would not be in the place on both sides.
