Obviously. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_mathematics

Huh?! Where did you spot an error? Mind to point out at least ONE?

It might help in your case to look up the general equation for an ellipse. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellipse#Equation_of_a_shifted_ellipse

[which represents the case where the cutting plane is perpendicular to the axis of the cone/cylinder]

Again, knowledge of the general equation for a circle might be helpful here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle#Equations

Obviously.
The following diagram might be helpful befor looking at the actual proof.

Hence Ec = cF. (See diagram above.)
With other words, GH is an axis of symmetry of the figure (besides EF).
So it's clearly NOT an "oval" as defined by AP.

Look, Archie, the fact that you are not capable of understanding a (rather simple) mathematical proof, does not invalidate that proof.
