In my opinion its not true. Envelop virus like Herpes, is Icosahedron. While other envelop virus like Rhabdomyolysis (bullet shaped), Corona (spherical). Pox (brick-shaped). So there is no relation between envelop and virus shape.

In my opinion, this is false, icosahedral (cubical) is the most common type of envelopes found in viruses and should be considered as the correct answer.

Really it is not true because Enveloped Viruses are Icoshederal except Poxivirus, so that it is Icoshederal.

Thank You.
