2. A sphere has infinite planes of symmetry, a cube does not.

All the given choices (A) to (C) are solids. A polygon is a plane figure. We cannot make a solid out of plane figures. We can make faces of polyhedrons out of plane figures, but that's not what the question is asking.

For the translation question, the work "back" is not usually in mathematics, so it is subject to subjective interpretation. In my opinion, it would be to the left, because we usually consider the positive x-axis as going forward, and the positive y-axis is going upwards.

4. Assuming my interpretation of the word "back" is correct, I said:

"... because we usually consider the positive x-axis as going forward"

so it would be A.
