Yes sometimes just think of a brick wall

Tessellation is covering a 2-d surface. Tessellation and making a 3-d shape are not compatible processes. 12 regular pentagons will form a dodecahedron.

transversal

Yes because all 4 sided quadrilaterals will tessellate

Usually not. A part of a circular shape will not.

Yes, many 3D shapes can tessellate, of course the cube, but also triangular and rectangular prisms. Spheres fit together in a regular repeating layout as well, but leave space between. There are also other shapes that can tessellate too, a portion of 3D n-imoes, for example, but aren't regular geometric shapes.

No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.

A regular pentagon will not tessellate.

No.
