Yes there are two different pentagons with two right angles next to each other and more with 2 right angles not next to each other.

Pentagons in normal (Euclidean) geometry can have at most three right angles, and the other two will be obtuse.However, in hyperbolic geometry, it is possible to construct a pentagon with 5 right angles, which is called a rectapentagon.

It depends on the prism. A prism that has a regular pentagon as base but is not a right prism has no right angles. At the other extreme, consider a right prism whose bases are pentagons that resemble a child's drawing of a house (square with a triangle roof). If the angles of the roof triangle are 90-45-45, the prism will have 22 right angles.

A shape with 5 angles has 5 sides, always. Pentagons have 5 sides, and 5 angles.

no, pentagons don't have parallel sides or right angles.

It depends on how they are classified. They can have 1 to 4 acute angles, they can have 1 to 4 right angles, they can have 1 to 5 obtuse angles. The individual values of the angles will generate different pentagons. They can be regular or irregular. They can be convex or concave.

All pentagons have five sides.
