If the diagonals are congruent and are perpendicular bisectors of each other then the parallelogram is a square.

If the diagonals are not congruent but are perpendicular bisectors of each other then the figure would be a rhombus.

Name the best classification for a parallelogram with perpendicular diagonals?

The best classification for a parallelogram that has perpendicular diagonals is a rhombus. A rhombus has four sides that are congruent. The also diagonals bisect the vertex angles of this type of parallelogram.

Are diagonals congruent if they bisect each other?

Not necessarily - the diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other (they are perpendicular bisectors of each other), but are not equal.

Show that if diagonals of a quadrilateral bisects each other then it is a rhombus?

This cannot be proven, because it is not generally true. If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, then it is a parallelogram. And conversely, the diagonals of any parallelogram bisect each other. However not every parallelogram is a rhombus.However, if the diagonals are perpendicular bisectors, then we have a rhombus.Consider quadrilateral ABCD, with diagonals intersecting at X, whereAC and BD are perpendicular;AX=XC;BX=XD.Then angles AXB, BXC, CXD, DXA are all right angles and are congruent.By the ASA theorem, triangles AXB, BXC, CXD and DXA are all congruent.This means that AB=BC=CD=DA.Since the sides of the quadrilateral ABCD are congruent, it is a rhombus.

Are diagonals of equal length in a parallelogram and rectangle?

the diagonal in a paralleogram is not equal but the diagonals in the rectangle are congruent this is because the opposite sides of a parallelogram and rectangle are same parallel to each other but the adjacent sides of a parallelogram is not perpendicular where as the adjacent sides of rectangle is perpendicular to each other.
