Select a shape that tessellates. Some shapes will tessellate by themselves, others will tessellate in pairs (octagons and squares), or larger groups. See the link for a flavour.

Some 3D shapes will tessellate as for example a brick wall

Yes because all 4 sided quadrilaterals will tessellate

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

A regular pentagon will not tessellate.

No.

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.
