HEXAGONAL PRISM - 1. The top and the base of hexagonal prism are congruent.

                                         2. The lateral sides are polygons.

HEXAGONAL PYRAMID - 1. Base is always a hexagon.

                                              2.The lateral faces are always traingles and have a common vertex.
