Only for a square or rhombus (diamond shape). The diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other, but are not perpendicular and do not bisect the opposite angles they join.

A square.

to bisect an angle means to cut it in half

45 degrees * * * * * The diagonals of a rectange bisect one another but can do so at any angle, x, such that 0<x<180 degrees.

Yes but there is no right angle forms.

It depends on what you mean by bisect. All rectangles have diagonals that bisect the other one. Only certain rectangles (Squares) have diagonals that bisect its vertex, the ninety degree angle.

yes

A square.

No they dont because a hexagon does not have a right angle

No but they cross at right angles in a square

to bisect an angle means to cut it in half

Rhombus and square are the only quadrilaterals whose diagonals bisect the angles of the quadrilateral. In both these quadrilaterals, the diagonals intersect at right angles, dividing each angle into two equal parts.

Yes

They bisect each other at an angle of 90 degrees
