### What is a similarity between prisms and pyramid?

Prisms come in many shapes and sizes but all prisms must have
flat sides - no curved sides so a Pyramid having flat sides and no
curves is a prism.

That is utter rubbish.
Both pyramids and prisms are polyhedra. That means they are
solid shapes bounded by plane faces. Neither of them can have
curved faces.
A pyramid has one polygonal base and triangular faces that rise
from the base and meet at an apex. A prism has two congruent
parallel bases that are linked together by rectangular faces.
Both terms are generic: they do not specify the polygonal
bases.

### How are pyramids and cones alike and differant?

Pyramids and cones are both kind of similar but also very
different.
You can say that the cone has no vertex (something that may be
confusing because of what a book says) but a cone really does not
have any vertex because there are no line segments or faces that
are only faces (the circle is both a base and a face) You can say
they are similar because they both have only one base
