Find the minimum number of straight lines required to make the given figure.

Answer: Option

Explanation:

The figure may be labelled as shown.

The horizontal lines are IK, AB, HG and DC i.e. 4 in number.

The vertical lines are AD, EH, JM, FG and BC i.e. 5 in number.

The slanting lines are IE, JE, JF, KF, DE, DH, FC and GC i.e. 8 is number.

Thus, there are 4 + 5 + 8 = 17 straight lines in the figure.

@Shreya.

First find out simple horizontal lines which can be IK, HG, AB & DC.

Now cross those out if your doing this on a paper.

Now keep finding vertical and slanting.

Then simply add all the lines you got together.

Horizontal lines+ vertical lines+ inclined lines = total no of lines .

H -> 4

V -> 5

I -> 8

So, 17 is the answer.

H -> 4

V -> 5

I -> 8

So, 17 is the answer.

They have not asked us to count line segments. They have asked us to find out minimum number of straight lines required to make figure.
