1. A cross section cuts a shape in half and is almost always parallel. If you take a prism and cut it in half down the middle, |dw:1444156650699:dw|
The cross section then becomes a square. Just think about it. Cutting a prism in half, straight from the middle, parallel with the base (Bottom) will just make a square.

Now, the second one says perpendicular. Perpendicular means it forms a 90 degree angle. So it'll make a kind of "T" shape at the base.

What you're going to get is a rectangle, with respective opposite sides being equal. That is, A, B, C, D Where A = C and B = D
