Yes its sides are parallel and its diagonals are perpendicular

A rhomus has 2 parallel sides and all sides are the same length. It may or may not have perpendicular sides; if perpendicular it is a special case of a rhombus and is called a square

A rhombus is perpendicular * * * * * No, it is not. A rhombus is a four sided plane figure which has two pairs of parallel sides. It is, therefore, a parallelogram. The only thing that is perpendicular in a rhombus is that its diagonals bisect one another at right angles.

a rectange

-- four equal sides -- opposite sides are parallel -- opposite angles are congruent -- diagonals are perpendicular

Yes. A rhombus has parallel sides. All sides are also congruent, and the diagonals are perpendicular to each other. The rhombus is a special kind of parallelogram, so in addition to all the propeties of a parallelogram, it also has a few properties of its own.

any rhombus

A rhombic octagon. An ordinary regular octagon does have perpendicular sides. They do not meet in the outline of the octagon because they are alternate, but they are still perpendicular. However, in the same way that a rhombus is a distorted square, a rhombic octagon can have 4 pairs of parallel sides but no perpendicular ones.
