### Plane Figure

• A.

A figure with only two dimensions.

• B.

Two intersecting lines.

• C.

A closed figure made up of line segments.

A. A figure with only two dimensions.
Explanation
The correct answer is "A figure with only two dimensions." This is because a plane figure refers to a shape or form that exists in two dimensions, with length and width but no depth. It does not have any thickness or volume. The other options, such as two intersecting lines and a closed figure made up of line segments, do not encompass the concept of a plane figure as they either describe a specific arrangement of lines or a closed shape composed of line segments.

### Solid Figure

• A.

A figure with a rectangle for a base.

• B.

A figure that has length, width and height.

• C.

B. A figure that has length, width and height.
Explanation
The correct answer is "A figure that has length, width and height." This answer accurately describes a solid figure, as it implies that a solid figure is three-dimensional, with measurements in three different directions: length, width, and height. This definition encompasses a wide range of solid figures, including cubes, rectangular prisms, cylinders, and pyramids, among others. The other options, a figure with a rectangle for a base and a quadrilateral with 4 sides, do not fully capture the three-dimensional nature of a solid figure.

• 3.

### Edge

• A.

Figures that have the same shape and size.

• B.

A line segment where two faces of a solid figure meet.

• C.

A closed plane figure in which all the points are the same distance from a poing called the center.

B. A line segment where two faces of a solid figure meet.
Explanation
The correct answer is "A line segment where two faces of a solid figure meet." This is because an edge is a straight line segment that forms the boundary between two faces of a three-dimensional solid figure. It is the point of intersection between two planes in the figure.

### Face

• A.

A flat surface of a solid that does not roll.

• B.

To turn a plane figure over

• C.

A graph that connects points to show how data changes over time.

A. A flat surface of a solid that does not roll.
Explanation
This answer is correct because it accurately defines a face as a flat surface of a solid that does not roll. In geometry, a face is one of the flat surfaces that make up a three-dimensional object such as a cube or a pyramid. It is important for a face to be flat and not curved in order to be considered a face. Additionally, the mention of "not roll" emphasizes that a face is a stable and stationary surface.

### Vertex

• A.

A symbol or letter that stands for a number.

• B.

A quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides.

• C.

The point where two rays meet. The point where the sides of a polygon meet. The point where three or more edges of a solid figure meet.

C. The point where two rays meet. The point where the sides of a polygon meet. The point where three or more edges of a solid figure meet.
Explanation
The answer is "The point where two rays meet. The point where the sides of a polygon meet. The point where three or more edges of a solid figure meet." This is because a vertex refers to the point where two rays meet, where the sides of a polygon meet, and where three or more edges of a solid figure meet. It is a common term used in geometry to describe these specific points of intersection.

A solid figure whose faces are all rectangles.

• B.

A quadrilateral in which opposite sides are parallel and all sides are the same length.

• C.

• 7.

### Triangular prism

• A.

A solid figure with two bases that are triangles and the other three faces are rectangles.

• B.

A polygon with three sides.

• C.

Moves a figure about a point.

A. A solid figure with two bases that are triangles and the other three faces are rectangles.
• 8.

### Pyramid

• A.

A figure with only two dimensions.

• B.

An exact location on a space.

• C.

A solid figure whose base is a polygon and whose faces are triangles with a common vertex.

• 9.

### Rectangular Pyramid

• A.

A solid figure with a rectangle for its base and triangles for all other faces.

• C.

An angle that forms a square corner.

A. A solid figure with a rectangle for its base and triangles for all other faces.
