The two parts of the figure coincide, then each part is called the mirror image of the other i.e., the part of the figure on one side of the dotted line falls exactly over the other part which lies on the side. Such a figure is called a symmetrical figure.

The alphabet ‘A’ has linear symmetry that is when it is cut from the middle vertically then it gives us the mirror image of it another part.

A is linearly symmetric, we can show with the help of figure.

The alphabet ‘L’ is not linearly symmetric, that is when it is cut from the middle vertically or horizontally it does not give the mirror images of another part.

Now we check the linear symmetry about H.

The alphabet ‘H’ has linear symmetry that is when it is cut from the middle vertically or horizontally then it gives us the mirror image of its other part.

H is linearly symmetric, we can show with the help of figure.

The alphabet ‘O’ has linear symmetry that is when it is cut from the middle vertically or horizontally then it gives us the mirror image of its other part.

O is linearly symmetric, we can show with the help of figure.

Hence among the four options L is not linearly symmetric.

So, the correct option is B.
