  1. Oval

    An oval is a closed curve in a plane which "loosely" resembles the outline of an egg. The term is not very specific, but in some areas it is given a more precise definition. In common English, the term is used in a broader sense; any shape which reminds one of an egg. The 3-dimensional version of an oval is called an ovoid.
