Q. |
## When a plane is perpendicular to a reference plane, its projection on that plane shows its true shape and size. |

A. | true |

B. | false |

Answer» B. false | |

Explanation: when a plane is perpendicular to a reference plane, its projection on that plane is a straight line. when a plane is parallel to a reference plane, its projection on that plane shows its true shape and size. |
