A parallelogram with four congruent sides may be either a square or a rhombus.

It may be a Rhombus or a Square

* A ParalellagramA rhombus. A special case of parallelogram.A parallelogram may sometimes fit that description.

A TrapeziumGoodness, no. A trapezium only has one pair of parallel sides. As far as I know, the answer is just a plain old parallelogram. You may be confusing this with a rhombus, equilateral parallelogram, or diamond, or even lozenge. The only parallelogram with adjacent sides that are equal, and therefore all sides equal (since opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal).By the way, did you notice you spelled parallelogram incorrectly? - 2 ells followed by one ell.the answer is RHOMBOID

True because the diagonals of a rectangle are equal in lengths

A parallelogram with equal sides is always a rhombus, and it may also be a square.

A parallelogram whose sides are equal in length is always a rhombus. In addition, it may be a rectangle. If it's a rectangle, then it's also a square.

A parallelogram with four congruent sides may be either a square or a rhombus.

It may be a Rhombus or a Square

They are quadrilateral shapes whose opposite sides are parallel. In a parallelogram, one pairs of parallel sides may be of a different length to the other pair; in a rhombus all four are the same length.

Adjacent sides of a parallelogram may be of different length. In a rhombus all four sides must be of the same length.

Its opposite sides are congruent. Its adjacent sides may be but it's not necessary. If they are, then it's a special kind of parallelogram, called a 'rhombus'.

:D I think that it is a rhombus cause a rhombus has four congruent sides but may not be a square or a rectangle.

A rectangle may be called a parallelogram but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals. A parallelogram can be called a rectangle if all four angles are right angles (90 degrees). A parallelogram can be called a rhombus if all four sides are the same size. A parallelogram can be called a square if all four angles are right angles and all four sides are the same size

Both have sides of equal length so that a square is also a rhombus. But a the angles of a rhombus need not be right angles so it may not be a square.

A parallelogram may or may not be a square, although a square is a parallelogram.
