##### About Class 6 Maths Chapter 5

In 6 Maths Chapter 5 Understanding Elementary Shapes, we will learn to basic geometrical shape and their properties. Comparison of line segments using Ruler and a Divider. Formation of Right angle and straight angle and their steps of constructions.
Complete Angle: Turning by two straight angles (or four right angles) in the same direction makes a full turn. This one complete turn is called one revolution. The angle for one revolution is a complete angle.
Acute Angle: An angle smaller than a right angle is called an acute angle.
Obtuse Angle: If an angle is larger than a right angle, but less than a straight angle, it is called an obtuse angle.
Degree measure: One complete revolution is divided into 360 equal parts. Each part is a degree.

### Important Questions on Class 6 Maths Chapter 5

##### What is the disadvantage in comparing line segments by mere observation?

There may be chance of error due to improper viewing.

##### Why is it better to use a divider than a ruler, while measuring the length of a line segment?

It is better to use a divider than a ruler, because the thickness of the ruler may cause difficulties in reading off her length. However divider gives up accurate measurement.

##### There are two “set-squares” in your box. What are the measures of the angles that are formed at their corners? Do they have any angle measure that is common?

One set-square has 45, 90, 45 and other set-square has 30, 60, 90. They have 90 as common angle.

##### A figure is said to be regular if its sides are equal in length and angles are equal in measure. Can you identify the regular quadrilateral?

A square is a regular quadrilateral.

##### What are the main sub-topics in Class 6 Maths Chapter 5?

The sub-topics under the topic Understanding Elementary Shapes (chapter 5 of grade 6th Maths) are:

1. Measuring line segments
2. Right angle and straight angle
3. Revolution in a clock
4. Acute angle, obtuse angle, and reflex angle
5. Measuring angles
6. Measuring angle using the protractor
7. Perpendicular lines
8. Classification of triangles
10. Polygons
11. Three-dimensional shapes.
