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.

A trapezoid, trapezium and a pentagon have only 1 set of parallel lines.

No, only 1 parallel line

In general, a square. A square always has 4 lines of symmetry. A pentagon need not have any. Only a regular pentagon can have 5 lines of symmetry. But if you created pentagons from sides with random lengths then, assuming the pentagons existed, only a tiny fraction would be regular: most pentagons would have no axes of symmetry.

At most 5, since all symmetry lines must pass by a vertex. It has 5 if and only if the pentagon is regular.

A square or rectangle are the only regular polygons, but many other shapes have two right angles and two parallel lines.

only if the pentagon is a regular pentagon. otherwise maybe not.

Yes, they do have parallel lines. * * * * * Only rhombuses do, kites do not.

No, only lines that have the same slope can be parallel.

No. it is the only polygon that can not have parallel lines all though any regular polygon with an odd number of lines will have no parallel lines If three points were in a straight line it could be argued that these formed a triangle with parallel sides, though really it would be just a line; or if we had a triangle with infinite height the sides would be parallel. In any other case, no.
