Q1.
How many edges does a triangular prism have?
5
7
8
Q2.
'Cubes and cuboids have the same number of edges.' Is this statement true or false?
False- cubes have 10 edges and cuboids have 12 edges.
False- it depends on the size of the cube and cuboid.
True- they both have 10 edges.
Correct answer: True- they both have 12 edges.
Q3.
Identify one of the differences between a triangular prism and a triangular-based pyramid.
Correct answer: A triangular prism has 2 faces which are triangles and 3 faces which are rectangles whereas a triangular-based pyramid has 4 triangular faces.
A triangular prism has fewer vertices than a triangular-based pyramid.
A triangular prism is always bigger than a triangular-based pyramid.
A triangular-based pyramid is always bigger than a triangular prism.

Cone
Cube
Sphere
Q5.
'I have 8 faces and 12 vertices. I also have 18 edges.' What am I?
Correct answer: Hexagonal prism
Octagonal prism

Q1.
What is the definition of the 'face' of a 3-D shape?
Correct answer: A flat or curved surface of the 3-D shape.
A flat surface of the 3-D shape.
The corners where the edges of the shape meet.
The part of the shape where 2 surfaces meet.
Q2.
'It is possible for a shape to have more vertices than faces.' Is this statement true or false?
False- the number of vertices is always less than the number of faces.
False- the number of vertices is always the same as the number of faces.
True- but it is not possible to have less vertices than faces.
Correct answer: True- it is possible to have more or less vertices than the number of faces.
Q3.
Which of the following 3-D shapes has the most vertices?
Cuboid
Hexagonal prism
Correct answer: Octagonal prism
Pentagonal prism
Q4.
Which of the following 3-D shapes has both curved and flat faces?
Cube
