    if you make a cut parallel to the base of a rectangular prism, the cross section will have the same shape as the base. The perpendicular cross section will have the same shape as the base it's parallel to.

    The shape of all the sides are rectangles, so cross sections cut parallel or perpendicular to them will also be rectangles
