QuestionCoveBot:

Thank you. Now give me a moment...

QuestionCoveBot:

So it's being cut in a plane parallel to the base of the pyramid. So then it would be cut like: |dw:1619126806802:dw| ;/ I tried. But it's not a Triangle or a Hexagon. If it was a Rectangle after cutting, it would be like... Eliminate Triangle and Hexagon. ______ | | ______ Not... ____ / \ ====== Which (above figure) one of your options looks like my above figure? Rectangle or... Trapezoid

QuestionCoveBot:

Ignore my bad drawing btw ;/

Rx1nyDxyz:

Your drawing looks good! And, i might be wrong, but to me it looks like a Trapezoid.

QuestionCoveBot:

You are correct. It would be a Trapezoid after the Pyramid gets cut.

Rx1nyDxyz:

Ah, thank you so much! This was confusing :)

QuestionCoveBot:

You're welcome.

QuestionCoveBot:

And if you need my help again, @ me.
