No. No shape with 7 or more sides will tessellate with multiple copies of itself. All traigles and quadrilaterals will tessellate, there are 14 irregular pentagons (the last was discovered in 2016), and a number of hexagons - including the regular hexagon.

No

no it cant be unless you use pentagons and octagons like on a soccer ball * * * * * That is an unbelievably rubbish answer! Tessellation - unless otherwise specified - refers to covering a 2-d surface, not the surface of a sphere. Normal soccer balls do not have pentagons and octagons but pentagons and hexagons.

There can be no answer because the assertion is not true. There are 15 types of convex pentagons - the last discovered in 2015 - which will tessellate.
