2.

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

16
17
18
19
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.

When I count the total number of lines I got a total 24.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

@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

I am not understanding this. Anyone, kindly explain this.

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.

Yes, I got 18 lines. So I think option C is the right answer.
