    The perception of symmetry is most likely to occur along which axis?

    • A.

      Horizontal

    • B.

      Vertical

    • C.

      Diagonal

    • D.

      It doesn't matter

    Correct Answer
    B. Vertical
    Explanation
    Symmetry is a visual concept that refers to a balanced arrangement of elements on either side of a central axis. When it comes to the perception of symmetry, the vertical axis is most likely to be associated with symmetry. This is because our visual system is more sensitive to vertical lines and tends to perceive vertical symmetry more easily compared to horizontal or diagonal symmetry. Therefore, the perception of symmetry is most likely to occur along the vertical axis.
