Question selecting a control vertex

I am very new to Maya, and I have a question that I think is simple.
I made a NURBS circle...
Create>NURBS Primatives>circle
It automatically appeared on my grid. That was what I wanted.
If you picture it, then all I have in the viewport is this NURBS circle.
I selected it. Then I right clicked and selected Control Vertex.
NOW...here is my question:
I tried to select one CV.
Every time I select one CV, Maya selects an opposite CV....so in essence two of them are selected every time. I have tried switching viewports and making sure
the vertices were not overlapping...etc... nothing seems to do it.
When I try to Control click on one of the CVs to deselect it, nothing happens.
Can anyone tell me why I can't select just one CV?

Thanks, I appreciate any input.

Default

do you have that reflection thing on? open your move attributes or whatever tool you are selecting with and check that the reflection thing is unchecked.

...i forget what its called, sorry.

Default The Reflection setting was the issue!

Thanks so much!!!

I did have the reflection setting checked in the move tool.
Once I unchecked that, I was able to select a single vertex.

Thanks so much---:bow:

I really appreciate the help!
