a)The planes ands axes of symmetry go through the faces, edges, and vertices of the octahedrons.

b)There are 13 planes and axes of symmetry

3 go through opposite faces, 4 go through opposite vertices, 6 go through the midpoints of opposite edges

c)The symmetry properties of cubes and regular octahedron are the same
