My DD has this ( the middle one ) in her maths book. I've tried reverse image on Google but can't find the name?

Pentagon?
(Irregular depending on year group)

It's an irregular Pentagon.
Im not sure if that specific arrangement has a special name though.

Yes, a pentagon

Irregular Pentagon (because it has 5 sides but they are not equal length)

It's a pentagon isn't it. Just not a regular one? Also called a polygon??

Yep an irregular pentagon

Could they be looking for whether it's a concave or a convex pentagon?

(As others have said, it will depend on your DD's age).
