A quadrilateral or a pentagon can have up to 2 pairs of parallel sides.A hexagon or heptagon can have up to 3 pairs of parallel sides.and so on.So, apart from a triangle, any polygon can have two sets of parallel sides.

Each of the eight line segments is perpendicular to 2 line segments. So there are 8 pair in all.

No. A bed is a three dimensional object: it cannot be a single parallel line. However, a bed will susually contain several sets of lines that are parallel.

There are more than two: A parallelogram has two sets of parallel line segments which may be of unequal length; A rectangle is a parallelogram that has line segments that meet at right angles; A rhombus has to sets of parallel line segments which are all of the same length; A square is a rhombus which has line segments meeting at right angles, or stated differently a square is a rectangle which has all line segments of the same length.

A square is a regular polygon with two sets of parallel sides. A parallelogram is an irregular polygon with one set of parallel sides. A rhombus is an irregular polygon with two sets of parallel sides. A rectangle is an irregular polygon with two sets of parallel sides. *Note - a regular polygon is a shape in which all sides are equal in length and all angles are equal in measurement.

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral in which each of two sets of opposite sides consists of two parallel lines (or for math purists I should say, parallel line segments).
