Dear student,
In bilateral symmetry, the body can be divided into identical left and right halves in only one plane. On the other hand, in radial symmetry, any plane passing through the central axis of the body divides the organism into two identical halves. So there are more than one plane of symmetry in radial symmetry, but only one plane of symmetry in bilateral symmetry.
