a tetrahedron is a three-dimension object that has four faces
a rectangular pyramid has five faces

but to answer, you do not need to know what either means. You need just two numbers. Thus, C.

A tetrahedron and rectangular pyramid have the same number of faces. Therefore, (a) and (b) together are sufficient to arrive at the answer.

you have tricked us with amazing ease
However, we need to know what Solid 2 is, for it could be the same tetrahedron of different type.

I insist on C.

I vote with Mistdew.

A tetrahedron, by its very name, means 4-sides. Any other polyhedron with 4 side is in fact also a tetrahedron. Hence, since the statement states that they are different, any different solid must have more since the tetradron has the least number of sides of any type of polyhedron.

The nitpicking here is what consitutes a different type?
