Best Answer

A quadrilateral that is not a parallelogram (two sets of parallel sides) may be a trapezoid or a trapezium (US terms). To draw a trapezium (irregular quadrilateral), draw two parallel lines and connect them with unequal lines at non-congruent angles. If you make the angles opposite and congruent, you have drawn a trapezoid, which looks like a small stepstool with a top smaller than the base. If you make the connecting lines of equal length, you have drawn a trapezoid or parallelogram.

It is a quadrilateral with exactly 2 pairs of parallel sides.

Then, the opposite sides are congruent.

A quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides is called a trapezium (most of the world) or trapezoid (US) . If it was to have two pairs of parallel sides it would be a parallelogram.

The Opposite Sides Parallel and Congruent Theorem states that if a quadrilateral has a pair of opposite sides that are parallel and congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.
