### 5 Questions

Q1.
What is the definition of an 'edge' of a 3-D shape?
An edge is a corner.
An edge is the longest length on the shape.
Correct answer: An edge is where two faces of the 3-D shape meet.
An edge makes up one surface of a 3-D shape.
Q2.
What is the definition of a 'vertex'?
Correct answer: A vertex is the corner point where edges meet.
A vertex is the longest length on the shape.
A vertex is where two faces of the 3-D shape meet.
A vertex makes up one surface of a 3-D shape.
Q3.
Which of the following shapes has 6 faces and 8 vertices?
Cylinder
Sphere
Square-based pyramid
Q4.
What is the difference between a cube and a cuboid?
A cube has fewer edges than a cuboid.
A cube is always larger than a cuboid.
Correct answer: A cuboid has faces which are rectangular whereas a cube has faces which are square.
A cuboid is always larger than a cube.
Q5.
Which of the following 3-D shapes is the same shape as a tin of soup?
Cone
