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.

A prism.

An edge is a segment that is the intersection of two faces. A cylinder has two parallel bases bounded by congruent circles, and a curved lateral surface which connect the circles. Therefore, a cylinder does not have an edge.

A Prism

Lateral Face - In a prism, the faces that are not bases. In a pyramid, faces that intersect at the vertex.

No, a pyramid has 1 base, you are thinking of a cylinder.

A cylinder

the difference between a pyramid and prism (in geometry) is that a pyramid has one base and lateral faces that are triangles where prisms have two congruent bases and lateral faces that are parallelograms
