Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given Information.

The figure is shown below.

Step 2. Explanation.

A figure is said to be a polygon if it is enclosed with straight lines. It should be 2 dimensional.

Since the given figure is enclosed with lines and is 2-dimensional, it is a polygon.

To classify the type of the polygon, identify the interior angles of the figure. Here few of the interior angles are more than 180°, hence the given figure is a concave polygon.
