All sides of a rhombus are the same length. Of the other parallelograms, only the square has identical side lengths (it differs from a rhombus by having four right angles).

Yes, all rhombi are parallelograms. A rhombus is, by definition, "a parallelogram in which all of the sides are the same length."

It is a rhombus.

three examples of parallelograms are a square, a rectangle, and a rhombus.

No but they are parallelograms.

Some parallelograms are rhombuses, but all rhombuses are parallelograms. A parallelogram is a rhombus if and only if all of it's sides are the same length.

It is a rhombus.

Not all parallelograms do but a rhombus does.

In a rhombus all four sides are of equal length, while in a parallelogram opposing sides have the same length. Thus all rhombi are parallelograms, but all parallelograms are not rhombi.

No but they are parallelograms.

There is not enough information to answer this question. A rhombus is a special case of parallelograms where all the sides are the same length. This says nothing about the angles of the parallelogram and the rhombus. ■

A square and a rhombus are two special forms of parallelograms.

Adjacent sides of a parallelogram may be of different length. In a rhombus all four sides must be of the same length.
