    They only have one dihedral angle (by duality, since Archimedean solids have a single edge length). Did you mean a different kind of angle?

    Every permutation can be written as a product of transpositions. If the product is of an even number of transpositions, then it is an even permutation, and vice versa.

    What do you mean by 'correct'? The convex regular polytopes have a simple recursive definition (for any dimension), and we can figure out their properties from there. In Euclidean space there are: 1...
