The polygon may have 2n sides, where n is any whole number greater than 1

An infinite number. Any parallelogram can be cut in half by a line parallel to one of its sides to increase the number by one. And there is no end to that process.

Of a regular hexagon, yes, since it has an even number of sides.

A concave hexagon can have 6 perpendicular sides if you count the external angle of one. The angles would be 90, 90, 90, 90, 90, 270

a pentagon has 5 sides total, and no parallel sides. A hexagon has 6 sides, so it has 3 parallel sides. any shape with an odd number of equal sides has 0 parallel sides, no matter how many sides it has. every shape with an even number of equal sides will have the # of sides divided by 2 (#/2) of parallel sides.

p = a. In a regular polygon with an even number of sides, every side is parallel to the one opposite it. So all a sides are parallel.

There is no specific name. For example, if you number the sides of a regular hexagon sequentially from 1 to 6, then sides 1 and 3 are not parallel but there is no specific name for that pair. In the context of the hexagon they do not meet - even if they do so way outside the hexagon. If they do meet up in the context of the shape, then they will be adjacent or intersecting sides.
