Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1All the edges of a cube are segments, and all the faces are flat planes. Can you have a plane intersect a cube in any way and produce curved lines?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's skip to D. A triangular prism has triangles for faces and line segments for edges. It's all straight and flat. So it's the same as the cube. An intersection with a plane cannot produce the parabolashaped curve in the yellow figure.
