A rectangle is not a rhombus.

Yes. A Parallelogram is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of parallel sides which are opposite each other and of equal length, though the pairs may be of different length to each other. If the angles are all 90° then the parallelogram is also a rectangle. If the angles are all 90° AND all sides are equal then the parallelogram is also a square. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares; Similarly all squares are rhombuses but not all rhombuses are squares And all rhombuses, and thus squares, are parallelograms, but not all parallelograms are rhombuses (nor squares).

No, only the ones with four right angles

Squares always have 4 interior angles which each measure 90°; rhombuses do not.

yes all squares are rhombuses but not all rhombuses are squares

All squares are rhombuses. A square is a special case of a rhombus with adjacent sides at right-angles. yes, squares are rhombuses.

No, but all squares are.

Yes Every square is a rhombus, but not all rhombuses are squares.

Yes, all squares are rhombi (aka rhombuses), but all rhombi are not squares.

Are all rectangles parallelograms

Only rhombuses are rhombuses. Some rhombuses are squares.

well sort of but squares are bigger then rhombuses

Both squares a rhombuses have all equal sides. A square is a rhombus with 4 right angles.
