You probably mean the Platonic Solids, they are the only five shapes constructed from the same faces.

prisms

it means the shapes that has faces,vertices and edges

The only regular 3D shapes I can think of with 5 faces are the square-based pyramid and the triangular prism (which is shaped like a Toblerone bar).

Spheres have no faces.

The five Platonic solids are regular polyhedra. They are convex shapes which are created from regular polygonal faces, such that the number of faces meeting at each face is the same.The five are:tetrahedron - 4 triangular faces;hexahedron (or cube - 6 square faces;octahedron - 8 triangular faces,dodecahedron - 12 pentagonal facesicosahedron - 20 triangular faces.To see their images, search Google for Platonic Solids.

A sphere, ellipsoid or toroid are examples of shapes with only one face. You cannot get fewer faces than that!

Spheres have no faces.

They are closed 3-dimensional shapes with polygonal faces.

No, two dimensional shapes do not have faces

A geometric solid has ... 50 solids! What does that mean?

Solids have definite shapes.

Shapes have sides. Do you mean, what shape has 6 sides or, what solid has 6 faces?
