Is a sine wave a symmetrical waveform?

Since a sine wave is described by the trigonometric sin(x) function, which is symmetrical, the sine wave is also symmetrical, unless there is a DC bias, in which case it is not. (It depends on your definition of symmetry)

What happens where the phase shift between the sine wave and cosine wave is 180?

This question makes no sense as the specified condition cannot occur. The phase shift between a sine wave and a cosine wave is always 90 degrees, by definition.

How do you generate cos wave from sine wave?

By shifting the sine wave by 45 degrees.

What shape is a sine wave?

I linked a picture of a sine wave below.

Is there a device that converts modified sine wave AC output from a generator to pure sine wave AC?

Well, a pure sine wave can only be produced as a pure sine wave. If it was modified to begin with, it would never be a pure sine wave. However, an actual generator should be supplying pure sine wave output, while something such as an inverter would be producing a modified sine wave.

What is a complex waveform?

It is a sine wave form coupled with either a DC component or other sine waves or both.The official definition of the word waveform is "a curve showing the shape of a wave at a given time."

What is a normal sine wave?

A sine wave is a mathematical function that describes a smooth repetitive oscillation which looks like a wave going from 1 to -1 and back to 1. A normal sine wave is much like a sine wave but has been normalized for practical uses like in electronics creating a "squared" sine wave A perfect sine wave does not exist in reality, it only exists in the minds of mathematicians.

How could you print out a sine wave of your voice on a laser printer?

The voice is not a sine wave.
