Draw a parallelagram this has the opposite sides parallel and no right angles

Draw four perpendicular lines that cross each other. Like this: # except at right angles. Count the angles - 4 in the centre square, and 12 around the overlapping parts.

The figure, as described, is impossible. If a quadrangle has 2 pairs of parallel sides then the number of right angles can be 0 or 4, but not 2.

Perpendicular lines meet each other at right angles as for example the plus sign +

draw four lines the make 3 right angles but don't connect at the end continue to finish the pentagon with whatever lines you want

Parallel refers to lines and not angles A right angle is formed by 2 lines that are perpendicular to each other and not parallel If you already have a line and you draw two lines which are at right angles to it, those two lines are parallel.

Draw a parallelagram this has the opposite sides parallel and no right angles

Yes and it will be in the form of an isosceles trapezoid which has one pair of opposite parallel sides of different lengths.

Yes. Not here, of course, but it can be done. Draw a right angle. Draw two more lines from those end points at acute angles that connect in the middle. It will look something like a chevron, a "V" shape.

If by two sets of perpendicular lines you mean two pairs of perpendicular lines we can do it. One set of parallel lines is easy so draw that as the first and second lines A right angle from one of them will intersect the other at a right angle so that's the third line and the right angles sorted. The fourth side cannot be parallel to the third so draw it at an angle to the third. We now have two right angles, one set of parallel lines and two pairs of perpendicular lines, first and third, and second and third. What we call it depends on where we are. In the UK it is called a trapezium and in the USA a trapezoid. I'm afraid I don't know naming conventions in other countries.

Draw two parallel lines of unequal length, and connect their end points. If you have a right angle, it is a right trapezoid. If the non-parallel sides are equal in length, it is an isosceles trapezoid.
