No.

It should have 6 like a cube.

Only a trapezoid and a rhombus are quadrilaterals because they have 4 sides.

Since all of the cube's faces are the same they all are or none of them are. A square can be a rectangle but a rectangle can't be a square. A rectangle is described as a quadrilateral with four 90 degree angles or two sets of parallel lines. A square is described as a quadrilateral with equal sides and two sets of parallel lines. All faces of a cube is are rectangles.

A cube and a rectangular prism have quadrilateral as their faces. Moreover, both have 6 faces, 8 corners, and 12 edges. The only difference is a cube has 6 squares as its faces while a rectangular prism has 6 rectangles as its faces.Well, they both have 6 faces, 8 vertices, and 12 edges. The only difference between the two, actually, is that a cube has square faces and a rectangular prism has rectangular faces.
