Which shape is the same as this one?

We’re trying to compare the three shapes at the bottom to the pink shape at the top. Let’s look at answer choice c. Answer choice c is a polygon. It’s a flat shape. It is not the same as the shape we started with because it’s flat. We can say for sure that the rectangle is not the same as the shape we started with.

Now let’s take a look at a. Answer choice a is a 3D object. It’s not a flat shape. But the two bases for answer choice a are circles. Answer choice a is a cylinder. And it is not the same as our shape. And that brings us to answer choice b. Answer choice b is a 3D shape with rectangles for bases. It is the same shape as the pink one on the top. They’re turned in different directions. But both of them are rectangular prisms.
