Reflective symmetry of 2D shapes


The center of the following star is at the origin.
A star mapped onto a coordinate plane. The x- y-coordinate plane scales by ones. The center is at the origin. The star has a point around zero, nine, a point around nine, three, a point around negative nine, three, a point around negative five, negative seven, and a point around five, negative seven. The equation y equals X is graphed on the coordinate plane. All points are estimates.
Which of the following reflective symmetries apply to the star?
SymmetryApplies to the figure?
Reflective symmetry over the line y=x
Reflective symmetry over the y-axis
