A quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides is a trapezoid.

It is an impossible figure. It is either a rhombus and has two pair of opposite sides that are parallel, or it has only one pair and is not a rhombus.It is an impossible figure.

Parallelogram, Rectangle, Square, Kite, Rhombus, Trapezium(only 1 pair of opposite sides is parallel).

Various irregular polygons have only one pair of parallel sides. Quadrilateral shapes specifically that meet this criterion are called trapezia (sing. trapezium, US spelling trapezoids/trapezoid). I do not know of any term for multilateral figures with exactly one pair of parallel sides.

1 pair of parallel sides mean 1 pair of non-intersecting lines for example, squares, their lines don't touch when they up or down.

Yes. All of them do, but the trapezoid is the only one with only one pair of parallel sides.

No. A trapezoid only has one pair of parallel sides. A chevron has no parallel sides.

A trapezium has one (and only one) pair of parallel sides.

A trapezoid is different from other quadrilaterals that have 2 pairs of parallel sides in that a trapezoid has only 1 pair of parallel sides of different lengths.
