# Every cylinder has 2 opposite faces as congruent circles, so it is also a prism. State whether the statement is true or false.

**Solution:**

Given, Every cylinder has 2 opposite faces as congruent circles, so it is also a prism.

We have to determine if the given statement is true or false

A cylinder is a three-dimensional solid figure which has two identical circular bases joined by a curved surface at a particular distance from the center which is the height of the cylinder.

A prism is a polyhedron whose bottom and top faces are congruent polygons and faces known as lateral faces are parallelograms.

The shape of the prism does not have any curve.

A prism can have square, rectangular, pentagonal and other polygon shapes but not circular shape.

Therefore, a cylinder is not a prism.
