Sir Cumference and the Sword in the Cone

Vertex unrolled a parchment. “This is the only clue the King gave us.”

Form the solids and find their places.
How many edges, points, and faces?
The shapes that make two will pass the test,
But one that does not must be your quest.
Three times as tall as the base is wide,
The true King’s future lies inside.
