What characteristic names a prism?

a prism is a polyhedron with two congruent faces, called bases, that lie in parallel planes. The other faces, called lateral faces, are parellelograms formed by connecting the corresponding vertices of the bases. the segments connecting the vertices are lateral edges. the altitude, or height, of a prism is the perpendicular distance between its bases.

Why does a prism or a cylinder have a set of parallel cross sections that are parallelograms?

The bases of a prism or cylinder are congruent and parallel and they meet the lateral face (cynder) or faces (prism) at right angles. A cross section parallel to the longitudinal axis will, therefore, be a rectangle.

Does a pyramid have at least two congruent parallel bases?

Not true. They have only one base and several (3 or more) lateral triangular faces. A pyramid has a single vertex over a base - there are no parallel faces in any pyramid.
