How Much Do You Know About Polyhedra?

In geometry, a polyhedron (plural polyhedra or polyhedrons) is a solid in three dimension with flat polygonal faces, straight edges and sharp corners or vertices. The word polyhedron comes from the Classical Greek πολύεδρον, as poly- (stem of πολύς, "many") + -hedron(form of ἕδρα, "base" or "seat").
