True.

Any parallelogram can be inscribed in a circle if the parallelogram is sufficiently small, but only two of the "corners" (a corner is a vertex) of the parallelogram will lie on the circle. But any parallelogram with four right angles (a rectangle or a square) can be inscribed in a circle, and all four of the vertexes will lie on the circumference. So the only parallelogram that can be inscribed in a circle is a rectangle.You'll recall that a parallelogram is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. If the interior angles of a parallelogram are right angles, that sets conditions for a special case of a parallelogram called a rectangle. If the sides of a given rectangle are the same length, that rectangle is now a special case of rectangle called a square. Any rectangle (including the special case of the square) can be inscribed inside a circle so all vertexes lie on the circle.If we're interested in a construction project, start by drawing a circle. Then pick any two points on the circle and connect them with a line segment. Next, draw a line segment from each of the original points across the circle, insuring that each line segment is at a right angle to that first line segment. Lastly, connect the two points on the circle where those last two line segments have interesected the circle. You'll find that in every case you try, you'll have constructed a rectangle. And if the line segments all end up the same length, your rectangle will be a square.

If a parallelogram is inscribed in a circle then it must be a cyclic quadrilateral.

No. For example, if one angle measures 100 degrees, and its adjacent angle is 80 degrees, then the opposite angles would be either 200 or 160 degrees, but in order for a quadrilateral to be inscribed in a circle the opposite angles would have to equal 180 degrees.

All geometric shapes can be inscribed in a circle, since the circle is bigger than the other geometric shape inscribed in it. (Obviously)

The largest rectangle inscribed in a circle would be the inscribed square. You can calculate the area of the square by the fact that its diagonal is the diameter of the circle.

Yes! It can(: you draw the circle in the rectangle with its top and bottom touching the top and bottom sides of the rectangle
