A parallelogram cannot have only two congruent sides, nor only two congruent angles.

Yes.

For segments or angles, "congruent" means that they have the same measure.For more complicated figures, such as triangles, "congruent" means that all corresponding sides and angles are congruent. "Corresponding" means that you make an assignment, from angles and sides of one triangle, to angles and sides of the other triangle. For example, you might label the sides of one triangle a1, b1, c1, and the sides of other triangle a2, b2, c2 - and you consider the "a" sides to be "corresponding".

A rhombus (4 congruent sides, diagonals perpendicular)that is not also a square (no right angles), andis also a parallelogram (opposite sides parallel and congruent, opposite angles congruent). It is also a quadrilateral, which has 4 sides.

Not necessarily.

if the angles of a figure are the same but the sides aren't, it is similiar. Congruent is angles and sides exactly the same

A similar figure has the same interior angles as a congruent figure but its sides are in proportion to a congruent figure.

Similar.

No. The word congruent is not applied to sides or angles.

That depends on the how many sides the figure or polygon has but they both will have the number of equal angles

False. The angles will be congruent, but the sides not so.

false

Congruent figures are similar - in sides as well as angles. Corresonding angles of similar figures congruent but their sides are not. The sides are all in some fixed ratio. [If that ratio is 1, the figures are congruent.]

If only two sides of one figure are congruent to two sides of another figure, you can say nothing about the opposite angles.

you can assume that the angles are congruent, but not the sides.

False dood

yes they are because they have congruent sides
