A kite and a trapezium can have exactly two right angles.

A 4 sided polygon is called a quadrilateral. Depending on where the two right angles are, would put the quadrilateral into different subsets. For example if the two right angles are on adjacent corners (and the other 2 angles are not right angles), then it is a trapezoid. If the 2 right angles are in opposite corners, and the other 2 angles are not right angles then it would be a kite-shaped quadrilateral.

An irregular quadrilateral.

If you are saying a quadrilateral that only has two right angles I believe it is a trapezoid. A square or other rectangle, all of which have four right angles, also satisfies all the conditions explicitly given.

There is no such shape because the 4 angles in a 4 sided quadrilateral must add up to 360 degrees no more and no less . Therefore 2 obtuse angles and 2 right angles are greater than 360 degrees which doesn't quite measure up for the requirements of a 4 sided quadrilateral.

No quadrilateral with 2 internal right angles can be anything other than a square or rectangle. The shape described in the question does not exist.Improved Answer:-It could be a trapezoid with two right angles, an acute angle and an obtuse angle.

With 2 acute and 2 obtuse angles it has 4 angles - the shape is a quadrilateral. The shape can be one of trapezium, parallelogram, rhombus, kite or a general quadrilateral. With the two acute angles next to each other (forcing the two obtuse angles to be next to each other) the shape can be either a trapezium or a general quadrilateral.

A synonym for a quadrilateral is a square.

If a set of equal sides are adjacent, then the quadrilateral is a "kite" shape. If a set of equal sides are opposite, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.
