Explanation
A rectangular prism is a three-dimensional shape that has six faces, and each face is a rectangle. The number of vertices of a rectangular prism can be determined by counting the number of corners or points where the edges of the faces meet. Since each face of a rectangular prism has four corners, and there are two congruent faces for each corner, the total number of vertices is 4 multiplied by 2, which equals 8. Therefore, the correct answer is 8.
