A regular pentagon has 5 lines of symmetry. Each line goes through the midpoint of a side and the opposite vertex.

My students were debating on this question when I was teaching them about lines of symmetry.
The answer is 1 and 5.
The regular pentagon that has curved sides at the bottom, has 5 lines of symmetry.
But when you look at an irregular polygon which looks like a house, has 1 line of symmetry.

A "house"-shape will have 1 line of symmetry. However, a general irregular pentagon with no two sides or angles equal will have 0 lines of symmetry. The question can only be answered sensibly if the assumptions you make about the shape are listed.

5. A line of symmetry can be traced from each vertex to the opposing side.

No it only has one because if you have the point at the top which should be there you can only fold it one way
