Which one of the following is most symmetrical?

Which one of the following is most symmetrical?

Right Answer is:

Simple cubic cell

SOLUTION

The cubic crystal system is the most symmetrical crystal system this is because in the cubic crystal system all the edge angles and also all the edge lengths are equal.

In the cubic crystal system, we observe all the sides and angles to equal to each other (a = b = c and α = β = γ = 90°), thus giving the highest symmetry (four 3-fold symmetry) among all 7 Bravais Lattices.
