A square has both parallel and perpendicular symmetry. It is composed of two sets of parallel lines that meet at perpendicular angles.

A parallelogram with four right angles could be either a rectangle or a square (which is a rectangle with four equal sides). A parallelogram is a figure with two sets of sides parallel to each other. The four right angles indicate that adjacent sides are perpendicular to each other. If the sides are all equal in length, it is a square. If the length and width are different, it is a rectangle.

rectangle or square

A square or maybe a rectangle because their sides are perpendicular and their angles form 90 degree angles

The adjoining sides are not parallel, they are perpendicular; forming right angles.

Yes because the 4 corners of a square are perpendicular in that they meet at right angles and also the diagonals of a square are perpendicular

If they are being drawn from the corners of the square, they should be equal.

They are perpendicular lines that intersect at right angles or 90 degrees

Since you are a quadrangle with square corners, you are a 4-sided polygon with 90° angles, which means you are a rectangle. If all the sides are equal length, you are a square, which is a specific type of rectangle.

its a right angle...... at the corners

They are perpendicular lines

The diagonals of a square are perpendicular (they intersect and form right angles). But they are angles bisectors since they bisect each pair of opposite angles. A perpendicular bisector actually bisects a side of a figure.

A square - is a two-dimensional figure having four sides, all of equal length and four identical angles at the corners.

Perpendicular lines

All four corners of a square are right angles.

Right angles are made up of perpendicular lines. A square has four of them.

A square is a rhombus with all angles 90o. When the angles of a rhombus are not all 90o, it differs from the square in this respect, and the diagonals are not of equal length unlike those of a square. A rhombus is like a square in that all its sides are equal in length, opposite sides are parallel and the diagonals are perpendicular and bisect each other.
