To determine

(a)

To name:

The solid in the given figure.

Explanation

Given:

The figure given below

and lateral faces are congruent; base is a regular polygon.

Properties Used:

A pyramid is made by connecting a base to an apex. The base is flat with straight edges, no curves, hence, a polygon and all other faces are triangles. The altitude/height of the pyramid is the line segment from the vertex perpendicular to the plane of the base.

If the apex is directly above the center of the base, then it is a Right Pyramid. If the apex is not directly above the center of the base, then it is an Oblique Pyramid.

A regular pyramid is a pyramid whose base is a regular polygon and whose lateral edges are all congruent...
