It is a cylinder

A prism has two parallel and congruent bases in the shape of polygons. Example - a cereal box (is rectangular prism). The top and bottom are rectangles(a polygon). They are the same size and shape (congruent) and also parallel. A cube (think of six sided dice) is a special rectangular prism. Imagine a a box where the top and bottom are triangles (of the shape size and shape). This is called a triangular prism.

A cylinder has two parallel congruent faces and a curved surface.

They could be pentahedra in the form of triangular prisms or octahedra in the form of triangular antiprisms.

A cylinder or half a torus (donut), or a long tubular shape whose ends are lined up so as to be parallel..

Cylinder

Prism, which a polyhedron with two congruent and parallel faces (the bases) and whose lateral faces are parallelograms.

A cylinder would seem to fit the given description that has circular parallel bases and a rounded body.

cube

It is a three dimensional shape whose faces are rectangles. There are three pairs of congruent parallel rectangles opposite each other. A smooth brick or box are good examples.

The two congruent 3D triangles were equal in shape, size, length and volume.

Any 3D shape with a constant cross-section; in other words, a 2D shape stacked on top of itself, like a triangle on a Toblerone box. But it need not be a triangular shape that is stacked. A rectangular 2-d shape would give a cuboid. Any poygonals shape can be stacked for a prism. Not a piramid, or pyramid even, which is not a prism!
