3) The tetrahedron is the only platonic solid that lacks a hexagonal projection (it can’t make a hexagonal shadow). Best it can do is a square.Sorry, the dodecahedron cannot throw a hexagonal shadow. What you've depicted is a hexagonal cross section, but the shadow from that view would have 12 sides. You've drawn some of the pentagons as triangles, which is impossible no matter what angle you view the pentagon.
