2 faces, 1 edge, 0 vertices

A cone is a 3D shape that has 1 face, 1 vertices, and 0 edges and 2 examples are a ice cream cone, a traffic cone and a birthday cap

In a 3-dimensional shape with polygonal faces, an edge is a straight line at which two faces meet. A vertex is a point where three or more edges meet. In solid shapes which are not polyhedra, an edge is still a line - possibly curved - where two faces meet. But a vertex can be any corner, for example, the point of a cone.

the difference between a cone and a prism is that a cone has no edges and only one vertex and a prism has both edges and vertexes.

No such shape exists. the closest contenders would be: a cylinder - 3 faces, 2 edges, 0 verticies or a cone - 2 faces, 1 edge, 1 vertex

Curved.

A cone has one face - its base - and one edge but no vertices. Vertices only occur at the meeting of two straight surfaces.

0 edges 0 faces (faces are planar bounded by linear edges) 2 curved surfaces 1 vertex

Cool question. I think there are at least three: hemisphere, section of an obloid, cone. Since you did not say face, you appreciate difference between definitions in platonic solids as defined by Euclid and Euler, and the curved solids. A hemisphere has one flat surface and no vertices, but so does a cone. A vertex is defined as the meeting of edges, which are defined as straight in euclidean geometry. Since there are no straight edges coming to a point in a cone (unless you want to talk about infinite edges emanating from the flat surface), there are no vertices on a cone.

1 corner,0 vertices and 0 edges * * * * * A vertex is the same as a corner, so a cone has 1 vertex. It has two faces: one circular and one curved. It has one edge where the two faces meet.

Generally, an edge is a straight line between two points or vertices, like on a square or cube. Since a cone doesn't have any of these, I would say 0 edges. Similarly, since a face is usually supposed to be flat, I would say 1 face (the curved part doesn't count).

A cone has two surfaces, one vertex and no edges.

Both.
