maybe a trapezoid?

its akite

A quadrangle is any shape which has 4 angles. In order for an angle to exist, there needs to be two lines meeting at a point. If the shape is a polygon (a closed 2d shape) then 4 angles means it must also have 4 sides. Thus a quadrangle with only one side would be impossible.

no its only a right triangle not another one

It is a plane shape and so has only one face.

There is no specific name for such a quadrangle.

If the question is about only one right angle, then the answer is a kite, arrowhead or a miscellaneous quadrangle which has no specific name.

a kite

OK, got it! What's the next step ?

A right angle triangle

A quadrangle is any shape which has 4 angles. In order for an angle to exist, there needs to be two lines meeting at a point. If the shape is a polygon (a closed 2d shape) then 4 angles means it must also have 4 sides. Thus a quadrangle with only one side would be impossible.

it is a square,trapizoid,or a kite * * * * * If it is exactly one right angle, it can only be a kite or an irregular quadrilateral/ If it is one or more, the above are candidates but what about a rectangle?

There are an infinite number of different ones, and there's no other way to describe them other than " four sides with only one right angle ".
