### What are characteristics of non-polygons?

A polygon is usually defined as a plane figure bounded by
straight line segments. Any figure which does not correspond to
this definition would be a non-polygon. For example, triangles,
rectangles, squares, and even star shapes are called polygons. A
circle, semicircle or oval is not a polygon. The have curved
boundaries.

### What solid figure has 4 faces 9 edges and 6 vertices?

It is not any kind of simply connected solid figure because it
does not satisfy the Euler characteristic which requires that
Faces + Vertices = Edges + 2

### How many edges faces and vertex does a prisum?

Depends on the type of prism.
In Euclidean geometry, a prism is a three dimensional
figure, or solid, having five or more faces, each of which is a
polygon. Polygons, in turn, consist of any number of
straight line segments, arranged to form a flat, closed,
two-dimensional figure. Thus, triangles, rectangles, pentagons,
hexagons, and so on are all polygons. In addition, a prism has at
least two congruent (same size and shape) faces that are
parallel to one another. These parallel faces are called
bases of the prism, and are often associated with its top and
bottom. The remaining faces of a prism, called lateral faces, meet
in line segments called lateral edges. Every prism has as many
lateral faces, and lateral edges, as its base has sides. Thus,
a prism with an octagonal (eight sided) base has eight lateral
faces, and eight lateral edges.
