  • $\begingroup$ If I look perpendicularly at each face? So for the 4 side faces, I will see a triangle for all of them. For the bottom side,I will see a square. Think of what exactly? $\endgroup$ – Jay22 Jun 18 '20 at 12:08
  • $\begingroup$ There was a reply yesterday paraphrasing,' the pyramid has no rotational symmetry, therefore not axis symmetric, however it is cyclic symmetric.' $\endgroup$ – Jay22 Jun 18 '20 at 15:09
  • $\begingroup$ A cone is axisymmetric. A pyramid changes dimensions at different points of the compass. $\endgroup$ – Tiger Guy Jun 18 '20 at 15:57
