Actually, a triangle on a sphere is not a triangle. A triangle is a 2D shape, whilst a sphere is a 3D shape. That said, it could be the base of a prism - maybe.

Most of these, whilst explaining some things rather basic, did not fully differentiate between 2D and 3D. There's a reason (multiple actually) a square is not a cube.
