A curve is a line which is not straight which has a start and an end point. So, this line is a curve. We call this kind of curve an open curve. Open curves have a different start and end point. We would call this a closed curve. This is a continuous line which has the same start and end point. We don’t have to take our pen off the paper to draw this kind of curve.
