下 (xià) Under
To better understand 下 (xià), under, let’s also look at 上 (shàng), above. In both characters, there is a horizontal line that represents the base line. Under is represented by a vertical line going under the base line and a dot pointing underneath. Above is represented by a vertical line going above the base line and a short line pointing to it.
