### Solution:

We can see some shapes given on the right of the map. Let us first understand these notations or symbols used for different buildings shown in the above map.
As we can see, to show the location of a hospital, a square is used. For the grounds, a triangle is used. The general stores are shown by parallelograms and the schools are shown by rectangles.
According to the map, the town is being divided into nine sections (areas).
In the first section, we can see only rectangle. This means that in this area there is school only.
In the second section of the first row, we can see  parallelograms, rectangle and square This  means that in this area there are general stores, school and hospital.
In the third section, there is triangle, which means that there is ground in this area.
In the fourth section, there is no shape. This means that this area contains no infrastructure.
In the fifth section, there are triangles and parallelogram. Therefore, there are grounds and general store here.
In the sixth and the seventh sections, we can see that both have rectangle. This means that both the areas have school.
In the eight section, there are parallelograms, rectangle and triangle, which means that there are general stores, school and ground.
Lastly, in the ninth section, there is parallelogram and square. Therefore, this section contains  general store and hospital.
Now, we have studied the whole map of the town and if we count the number of schools in this town then the count is 5.
Therefore, there are 5 schools in this town.
