A regular hexagon has 6 parallel sides (3 pairs)

An octagon can have 0, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 parallel sides. A regular octagon has 4 pairs of 2 parallel sides, (8 parallel sides in all).

Three pairs: all six sides are members of a parallel pair.

Not sure what pralel means. A hexagon need not have any parallel sides or it can have up to three pairs.

A shape with three and only three sides is a triangle, but it is not possible for a triangle to have three perpendicular sides.
