Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The square prism has larger volume than a square pyramid as the pyramid will fit within the prism. Just imagine the top of the pyramid being somewhere within the prism. With math, the volume of the pyramid is 1/3rd * Area_Of_Base* Height, which is 1/3rd of the prism volume (V_Prism = Area_Of_Base * Height);
