No, regular polygons with an even number of sides are also symmetrical.

False

No. A polygon can be symmetric but need not be. In fact, the majority of polygons are not symmetrical.

No, all regular poygons are symmetrical. Ones with an odd number of sides have rotational symmetry.

All regular polygons A polygon is symmetrical if its sides that cross the line of symmetry are halved by the line of symmetry and if the sides that do not cross the line of symmetry have the same positions in space, the same lengths, and the same angles with their neighboring sides as do the sides on the other side of the line of symmetry. The only symmetrical triangles are isosceles triangles (equilateral triangles are isosceles). The only symmetrical quadrilaterals are squares, rectangles, rhombi (the line of symmetry connects either pair of opposite corners), isosceles trapezoids, and kites.

Yes, it is true.

Regular polygons.

As the name suggests, they are polygons that have one or more lines of symmetry or rotational symmetry of order two or more. A symmetric polygon is not the same as a regular polygon.

Regular polygons with 3, 4 or 6 sides.

Regular polygons with 5, 7 or more sides.
