By definition, the circular cross-section of a cone changes linearly in width as you go along its axis.

By definition, the cross-section of a prism is constant along its axis.

So, by definition, a cone prism is an impossible shape.

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.

Which shape does not have rectangular faces is it triangle prism is it cube or is it cone?
