C

D
355.88 cm3

Solution

The correct option is A 155.88 cm3 
We know that volume of a prism = Area of base × height

The base is triangular and has each side of the same length, so the base is an equilateral triangle. 

Now, area of the base (equilateral triangle) 

=34×side2

=34×62

=15.588 cm2

Volume of the prism = base area × height

=15.588×10

=155.88 cm3
