Yes. A parallelogram has two pairs of equal sides, but in a rhombus all the sides are equal.(similar situation: a square is a special kind of rectangle)

No. But squares are a special kind of parallelogram.

Yes, but as a square. A square is a special kind of rectangle and also a special kind of rhombus.

Quadrilateral.Quadrilateral is the general term for any four sided shape. Types of quadrilaterals include kites, parallelograms and trapezoids (UK: trapezium). An iscoceles trapezoid is a kind of trapezoid. Kinds of parallelograms include rectangles and rhombuses. A square is a type of rectangle and a type of rhombus. Rhombuses, and by extension, squares, are also types of kites.

Yes.A square is a special kind of rectangle, one with all sides of equal length. So all square are rectangles.All rectangles are not squares, some (most) have two sides longer than the other two.

In a quadrilateral, the diagonals are only congruent for rectangles (or squares, which is a special kind of rectangle). Note: they are not congruent for a Rhombus.

Most rectangles are not squares.

A square is a special type of rhombus. It has the properties of a rhombus, such as all sides being equal, but it has the extra property of having interior angles of 90°. Squares and rhombuses are special types of parallelograms too. And they are all special types of quadrilaterals.
