As a regular 5 sided pentagon it has no parallel sides but as an irregular pentagon it can be shaped to have parallel sides.

It has no parallel sides

A regular pentagon does not have any parallel sides. In contrast, a pentagonal prism has two parallel and congruent bases.

Not as a regular 5 sided pentagon but quite possible as an irregular pentagon.

It depends on the pentagon. If it is regular, then there are no parallel sides.

None, for a regular pentagon. Not all pentagons are necessarily regular (all sides and angles the same). You can make a pentagon with 2 pairs of parallel lines. Take a square, and cut off one corner. Now you have a 5-sided polygon (pentagon) with 2 pairs of parallel sides.

A hexagon has three pairs of parallel sides. A pentagon has no lines parallel. Above answer is correct but only if they are regular hexagon and pentagons. A non-regular hexagon can have as little as none parallel lines. A non-regular pentagon can have two parallel lines.

None normally in a regular 5 sided pentagon but it is possible to construct an irregular pentagon with a pair of parallel sides.
