It will be a square shape if it is a squared based pyramid

It is called a frustum.

A cube, a rectangular solid (box) or any skewed version of these. Even a truncated pyramid (square base, four sides, but top cut off).

i think it's a cone * * * * * No, it cannot be a cone. But there are a number of possibilities: A decagonal pyramid = a pyramid whose base is a decagon. A nonagonal prism = a prism whose bases are nonagons. A pentagonal pyramid + pentagonal frustum = two pentagonal pyramids stuck together along their pentagonal bases and with one of the apices (plural of apex) cut off. A cuboid with three corners cut off. et cetera.

If the pyramid has a triangular sides then truncate each vertex (cut off a small pyramid shape from the vertices).If the pyramid has a quadrilateral base then truncate 3 vertices.If the pyramid has a pentagonal base then truncate 2 vertices.If the pyramid has a hexagonal base then truncate 1 vertex.If the pyramid has a heptagonal base then it is already an octahedron.If the pyramid has an base with 8 or more vertices then slice off the section formed by joining the apex and two vertices from the base which are six apart. This makes the base heptagonal and therefore the shape is an octahedron.

A frustum. Specifically, a frustum of a triangular pyramid -- as one could also have a frustum of a cone, square pyramid, etc.

Not exactly. A frustum would be a pyramid with the apex cut off. A truncated pyramid would be a pyramid with all vertices cut off.

It is a frustum of a rectangular pyramid.

It is the net of its solid shape. If the top of the pyramid is cut off parallel to the base, then it is a truncated pyramid, or a frustum.

YES.

A cube, a rectangular solid (box) or any skewed version of these. Even a truncated pyramid (square base, four sides, but top cut off).

A pentagonal prism, a hexagonal pyramid, a cube with one vertex (corner) cut off, a tetrahedron with three vertices cut off - these are some of the possibilities.

If your phone is cut off you can call or text via Wi-Fi. There are several apps that you can use on your Wi-Fi such as textplus.
