#### Answer:

sin x is an odd function. So, if (x, y) is on the wave, so does (-x, -y). This is the condition for the graph to be symmetrical about the origin. There is no symmetry, about either axis.

#### Explanation:

For odd functions, like sin x, if (x, y) is on the graph, so does #(-x, -

y)#. This is the condition for the graph to be symmetrical about the

origin. There ie is no symmetry for y = sin x, about either axis.
