A parallelogram has two pairs of congruent sides, and the opposite sides are congruent.

The Opposite Sides Parallel and Congruent Theorem states that if a quadrilateral has a pair of opposite sides that are parallel and congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

There are infinitely many possible shapes. For example an octagon with sides [sequentially] numbered 1 and 5 that are equal.Another ViewYes the above is true, but specifically a shape with twopairs of congruent, opposite sides is called a parallelogram.

In geometry, it refers to two shapes that are identical in shape and size. If one shape can be moved - without stretching or cutting - so that it exactly covers another, then the two shapes are said to be congruent.

A polygon with 2n sides (n>1) can have opposite sides congruent.

Any polygon with 2n sides (n integer) where opposite sides are parallel, will have its opposite angles congruent.

There are many such shapes. Any polygon with an even number of sides can have opposite sides that meet the above requirements.

Congruent means when 2 shapes are exactly the same Similar means the shapes are exactly same but with different sides

Parallelogram, Rectangle, and Isosceles Trapezoid, opposite sides are congruent.

Of some shape, Yes. Of other shapes, No.

In short, no. Similar shapes are shapes in which all corresponding angles congruent regardless of the length of the sides. Congruent shapes have congruent corresponding angles and corresponding sides. In effect congruent shapes is a special condition of similar shapes.

Of the quadrilaterals: a square, a rectangle, a parallelogram and a rhombus

this would be a rhombus. rhombuses are parallelograms (four-sided shapes with opposite sides parallel) that have all equal side lengths. squares are included as rhombuses.
