By exploiting the supersymmetric invariant restrictions on the chiral and antichiral supervariables, we derive the off-shell nilpotent symmetry transformations for a specific (0 + 1)-dimensional supersymmetric quantum mechanical model which is considered on a (1, 2)-dimensional supermanifold (parametrized by a bosonic variable and a pair of Grassmannian variables ()). We also provide the geometrical meaning to the symmetry transformations. Finally, we show that this specific SUSY quantum mechanical model is a model for Hodge theory.
