What shape has one set of perpendicular lines with four sides?

A right trapezoid has exactly one pair of perpendicular lines and is a quadrilateral.

How many parallel lines and perpendicular does a trazioud have?

A trapezoid has 2 parallel lines. It may or may not have perpendicular lines.

Are a trapezoid's diagonals ever perpendicular?

Yes, they can be. Here is an example to see how this is true. Construct two perpendicular lines AB and CD that intersect at a point O. Let AO = CO, BO = DO and AO ≠ BO, then ABDC forms an isosceles trapezoid. If the lines are not perpendicular, then also ABDC is an isosceles trapezoid and it has perpendicular diagonals.

Does a trapezoid have a pair of perpendicular lines?

The only requirement for a trapezoid is that one pair of opposite sides be parallel. There could be trapezoids with a pair of perpendicular lines.

Does a trapezoid contain 2 right angles?

Since a trapezoid is a quadrilateral whose bases are parallel and not congruent, then one of its sides can be perpendicular to its bases (as the shortest distance between two parallel lines). Such a trapezoid is called a right trapezoid.

Why can't a trapezoid have right angle?

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral that has one pair of parallel sides. Since a right angle is formed by two perpendicular lines, it would mean that one of the non-parallel sides would have to be perpendicular to one of the parallel sides, which violates the definition of a trapezoid. Therefore, a trapezoid cannot have a right angle.

Does a trapezoid have perpendicular diagonals?

no it does not
