Draw a figure with an eccentricity nearly equal to zero. b) Draw a figure with an eccentricity nearly equal to 0.99.

Eccentricity nearly zero would be a nearly perfect circle (eccentricity of a circle would be 0)

Eccentricity of about 0.99 would be a ellipse.

That link is for an orbital simulator where you can change the eccentricity to see how it changes the shape.
