Apsolotely not it is far away from ever being one unless you

mechcanicaly pulled both ends of it and streched it out. Dr. Joseph

Blue No!


Polygon is closed plane figure made up of 3 or more line

segments.


Sphere is a three-dimensional figure with all points in space at an

equaldistance from a fixed point.


The fixed point is called as center of the sphere.


So, a polygon is a two-dimensional figure and a sphere is a

three-dimensional shape.


Hence, a sphere is not a polygon.
