    just cut the diagram and find a listing of 3 dimensional shapes. For the first one as you don't know where you're cutting you aren't sure if you are making a cube as a cube has all equal sides so you have a cuboid. Do the same for the second.

    they are asking what is the shape of the "top" of the prism. Or if you cut it in half, and look down on it, what shape do you see?
