Hint: Make a note of all capital letters of the English alphabet from A-Z. Symmetrical along horizontal lines means if we divide anything horizontally it should be divided into two equal parts. Some alphabet has no lines of symmetry, some have one and some have 2 or more.

Complete step-by-step solution:
Before solving this question, we must know about Symmetry, symmetrical objects, and symmetrical lines.
Symmetry: Symmetry means that one shape is exactly like another one when you move it in some way, for example; turning or flipping the object.
Symmetrical Objects: An object is symmetrical when it is the same on both sides. A shape is symmetrical if a central dividing line can be drawn on it, to show that both the sides of the shape are the same.
Symmetrical Line: The symmetrical line is the imaginary line that passes through the center of a shape or object and divides it into identical parts. It is also known as the line of symmetry.
Let us take all the capital letters of the English alphabet,
A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z

Note: The alphabet ‘O’ has an infinity line of symmetry. Infinity means that the number of lines of the letter O cannot be counted. One can draw infinity lines of symmetry in the letter ‘O’.
A figure which does not have any similarity between two halves is known as an Asymmetrical Figure. In an Asymmetrical figure, none of the sides of the shape is equal.
