A shape is the form of an object or its external boundary, outline, or external surface, as opposed to other properties such as colour, texture, or material type.

## Closed Figure:

• A figure that can be traced with the same starting and stopping points, and without crossing or retracing any part of the figure. Any polygon is an example of a closed figure.

• a closed shape can be defined as an enclosed shape or figure whose line segments and/or curves are connected or meet.
