So it depends on what type of prism it is: hexagonal? pentagonal?


A prism has 6 corners But a pyramid has 7


* * * * *


The first answer is correct, the second is not.


A prism is a generic term used to describe a solid (3-dimensional) object that has two faces polygonal (bases) that are identical and parallel. These faces are joined by a number of rectangular faces.

The bases can be any polygon with n (≥ 3) sides and a prism has 2n vertices (corners).
