6 sides, 6 corners (vertices)

The answer depends on how many of the 5 to 8 vertices of the hexagon are truncated.

A hexagon is a plane (2-dimensional) figure with 1 face, 6 vertices and 6 sides (which may be called edges).

Strangely enough, a 6 sided hexagon has 6 sides! In fact, if it did not have 6 sides, it would not be a hexagon. A hexagon also has 6 vertices. It is a two dimensional shape and so does not have faces, although some people do consider it to have one face.

7 faces 12 edges 7 vertices

Pretty simple really: Vertices are corners and edges are boundaries so, a hexagon has six of each.
