If it has only 4 sides in total, then it's a parallelogram.I think any figure with more than 4 sides can have two sets of parallel sides.

Square

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral (meaning it has 4 sides) with 1 pair of parallel sides (meaning only 1 side is parallel to another on the figure).

A decagon has 10 sides. Any regular polygon with four or more sides will have pairs of sides that are parallel. A decagon will have 5 pairs of parallel sides.

A right hendecagon can have no parallel sides because there are eleven sides to a hendecagon. It is not a requirement that there be any pairs of parallel sides in an irregular hendecagon, although there could be one or more pairs.

A trapezium or parallelogram. A pentagon can have a pair of parallel sides. Polygons with 6 or more sides can have two (or more) pairs of parallel sides.

The simplest would be an octagon; but you could also have polygons with 9 or more sides.

A decagon has 10 sides. Any regular polygon with four or more sides will have pairs of sides that are parallel. A decagon will have 5 pairs of parallel sides.

An equilateral hexagon would work. It has more than 2 pairs of parallel sides though. There is no shape with only 2 pairs of parallel sides besides a parallelogram.

A parallelogram or a selection of polygons with 6 or more sides.

A hexagon can have 0, 1, 2 or 3 pairs of parallel sides. A regular hexagon has 3 pairs of parallel sides. A hexagon can also have 2 sets of 3 parallel sides! If you are allowed to count sides in more than one pair, this would be 6 pairs of parallel sides!
