Best Answer

The answer depends mainly on the plane which is used to divide the prism.

The result can be a rectangular prism (or a cube), a trapezoidal prism, a triangular prism, but to get really exotic shapes the cutting plane needs to be not parallel to any of the faces or diagonals of the prism.
