No. Each of its four sides is perpendicular to two other sides.

By definition, a parallelogram two separate pairs has parallel sides. The only type of parallelogram that has perpendicular sides is a rectangle. All others have non-perpendicular sides.

It is a closed four-sided shape with one pair of parallel sides, joined at only one end by a line which is perpendicular to both.

There is no shape with only two sides. The lowest is three which is a triangle.

It has 4 perpendicular lines, or 4 equal sides. However, not all lines are perfectly equal!

A shape with three and only three sides is a triangle, but it is not possible for a triangle to have three perpendicular sides.

The question asks about four sides and 2 perpendicular sides. That makes 6 sides in all. So it is a hexagon with either only one right angle, or two sides that are mutually perpendicular.

I think this person means the trapazoid. It has only one pair of parallel sides.

No, a square has four perpendicular sides.

No, not in general. Only a right triangle has two sides which are perpendicular.

No. Each of its four sides is perpendicular to two other sides.

Any polygon can have only 1 pair of perpendicular sides.

The perpendicular adjacent sides in the triangle would be 3 sides. It is the basically horizonstal line next to a vertical line(perpendicular) if it was parallel adjacent then only two side of triangle /\ <-- parallel

Square & Rectangle are the only two. Rhombus (diamond) & parallelogram have adjacent sides, but no 90 degree angles (not perpendicular).

Yes. Squares only contain 90 degree angles, so all sides are perpendicular to the adjacent sides and parallel to the opposite one.
