A cone is a common pyramid-like figure where the base is a circle or other closed curve instead of a polygon. A cone has a curved lateral surface instead of several triangular faces, but in terms of volume, a cone and a pyramid are just alike.

What is an oblique shape?

If we're talking in purely geometric terms: If the edges of a prism/cylinder make a right angle with the base, it is called a right prism/cylinder. If not, it is an oblique prism/ will look as if it were slanting to one side instead of standing straight. Similarly, if the top vertex of a pyramid/cone is directly above the center of the base, it is a right pyramid/cone. Otherwise, it is an oblique pyramid/cone. Again, it will look a bit askew.
