    Yes. You see two lines, vertically, inside the body part of the
    transistor, along the vertical sides of the body.
    These lines are there to show you that it is the front side of the
    transistor you are looking at.

    These lines show the edges between the rounded and the flat surfaces.

    Yes.

    A: you can see its edges in the front view, and
    B: the one below is the bottom view, as if you're holding it with both
    index fingers and both thumbs, and just swing the legs up toward you.

    Cheers!
