    It is a triangle, namely option B, since we have this subsequent drawing: |dw:1434562961845:dw|

    Oh, because you cut it in half horizontally. I see. One question though, is every question going to be cut horizontally im thinking not.

    if you cut your pyramid with an horizontal plane then the cross section will be a rectangle, like this: |dw:1434563232766:dw|

    Okay, i see. They just said "perpindicular to its base" so i got a little confused.
