**Tell whether the figure is a polygon. If it is a polygon, classify it and tell whether it is a convex or concave. If not, explain why.**

The given figure is **a polygon**. It is a concave polygon.

The figure is shown below.

**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 ${180}^{\xb0}$, hence the given figure is a concave polygon.
