    Hello:

    My daughter drew a line on a paper like in this picture:

    Can I say she drew a bending line on the paper?

    Thanks.

    No; you could say "a bent line" or "an angled line." I would describe this particular line as "a line bent at a 90-degree angle."

    Or, an L-shaped line (in that picture, an inverted one).

    I'd call it a line with a rounded corner.
