The is wrong because when it says ALL, it means that EVERY symmetric line is a diagonal.

 

This can be proved wrong with a counterexample.

This here is a symmetric line, but not a diagonal

A diagonal is just a line from a vertex to any other vertex.

 

Try it with a normal peice of rectangular paper.

 

Fold it along the diagonal.

 

Does it fold exactly in half and do the 2 sides overlap each other perfectly? 

 

 If not, then that diagonal is NOT an axis of symmetry.
