3. You wanna know how?? First there are 3 triangles that touch the base, so there are only 3 lateral faces. :)

There would be one face for each side of the square. The answer is four if you or only counting the triangular faces. It would be five if you are including the square base. * * * * * One square base and four triangular faces (that meet at an apex above the base).

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 tetrahedron.

A sphere has no base, and since it has no base, it has only a surface area and no lateral area.

Any face of a tetrahedron can be considered a base. A pyramid, in general, has one polygonal face (with n sides) and n triangular faces. In such a pyramid, the triangular faces would normally not be considered bases - only the n-gon would.

The base of a square pyramid is the only face that is a square - all the others are triangular in shape. So you do not need any measurements to determine which is the base.

a triangular pyramid is a triangular prism but it doesn't work vise-versa. The prism needs a minimum of 1 triangle face but it can have more.A pyramid can only have one triangular face.

A face is a polygon. There are none on a cone. There is only one vertex at the top of the cone. Although the cone does not have a face it does have a lateral side and a base.
