Rectangle

No. You also need all of the sides to be congruent. For example, a rectangle has four congruent angles, but it is not a regular polygon.

The answers are No and No. In the first case, a rhombus, and in the second, a rectangle are examples of quadrilaterals which satisfy the congruence requirements but neither is a regular polygon.

A quadrilateral, a parallelogram, a rhombus, a rectangle, a regular polygon.

No, a polygon is not a rectangle, but a rectangle is a polygon. You just got the words mixed up.

A regular polygon is a polygon in which all sides and angles are congruent, so a rectangle is a regular polygon when it is a square: when all sides are equal.

A rectangle, for example.

Square, or a rectangle. * * * * * Since it is a REGULAR polygon, it cannot be a rectangle. So the only answer is a square.

That's just a regular rectangle. A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides and a rectangle is a polygon with four sides.

A rectangle or a rhombus.

A rectangle

it is not a line segment

A regular polygon requires all sides to be the same length; in a rectangle not all four sides are the same length (they form two pairs of sides of equal length) and so it is not a regular polygon.

its a regular quadrilateral * * * * * No it is NOT! The sides of a rectangle, in general, are not all the same length and, therefore, it is not a regular polygon.

No. You also need all of the sides to be congruent. For example, a rectangle has four congruent angles, but it is not a regular polygon.

No, because a regular polygon should have sides of equal length. But the adjacent sides of a recentangle can have different lengths.
