Why did we rotate the screen shot 180 degrees to check for symmetry? I didn't get the purpose of this test.

Please explain further if anyone if familiar with designing and testing.

I think it's so you focus on the layout and not the content. If your content is upside down then you can't read the words, so you tend to focus more on where your content is instead of what the content is. It can help you create a more balanced layout. You should use this check on various screen sizes if you are creating a responsive site, but it would be pretty hard to turn a TV 180 degrees.
