A quadrangular is an adjective, not a noun. A quadrangular pyramid will have a different number of faces from a quadrangular prism, for example.

It has five faces in all. How many are lateral depends on the configuration of the pentahedron.

How many bases does a quadrangular prism have?

Any such figure has only one base; the one that it stands upon. If you are asking "How many faces does the quadrangular prism have?" then its "ends" are both quadrangular shapes (i.e. rectangles) and there are 4 more rectangles forming the "length" of the prism so the answer is 6 These rectangular shapes are more accurately called "faces"; the edges of the rectangles are called "edges", and the corners are called "vertices". Your quadrangular prism has 6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices.

What is the lateral area of a regular quadrangular prism that has a perimeter of 16 cm and a height of 4 cm?

What makes this question tricky to answer is the understanding of the terms. Were the correct terms used in the question, and does the question poster and answer contributor have the same understanding of those terms? Having said that, here goes. A prism is a polyhedron with at least two congruent parallel faces. They are called the bases. The other faces (the "lateral faces") are parallelograms that are formed by lines that connect the corresponding vertices of the two bases. A quadrangular prism has a quadrangular base (such as a rectangle). If the base is some sort of regular polygon, it's called a regular prism. The lateral area of a prism is defined as the total area of the lateral faces. To calculate the lateral area, you multiply the length of an edge by the perimeter of the face that is perpendicular (at right angles to) to that edge. So, assuming the height, 4 cm in this case, is perpendicular to the perimeter, 16 cm, we calculate the lateral area to be 4 x 16 or 64 square centimeters or 64 cm2.
