Which of the following could NOT represent the intersection of a plane and a triangular prism?

A. a triangular prism

B.a triangle

C. a rectangle

D. a point

I had D, a point because if you cut a triangle in half you can not get a point out of it.

If this is wrong can you explain what is correct.

Thanks

The intersection of a plane and a solid is a plane figure. So, (A) is not possible.

If the plane intersects the prism at a vertex, the intersection is just a point.
