What is the definition of a 2-D shape?

Answer

From the name itself, a 2-D shape is a shape having only two dimensions, such as length and width. This means the shape is occupying only one plane and has no depth.

In math, 2-D shapes are also called polygons. These are categorized into ellipses and circles, triangles, quadrilaterals and squares, pentagons and hexagons, and so on. There is no limit to the number of sides a polygon can have.

In art, 2-D shapes can either be geometric or organic. Tools are needed in making geometric shapes, such as circles and triangles. On the other hand, organic shapes are those found in nature, such as the shapes of clouds.
