An angle is formed where two lines meet. Parallel lines do not meet. Therefore they do not form an angle. So there is no angle to have a name. So no name.

Such a quadrangle cannot exist. The right angle must be formed by one of the parallel sides and one of the non-parallel sides. Then the angle formed at the other end of that non-parallel side would also be a right angle (the non-parallel side would be a transversal intercepting the two parallels). But then the quadrangle has two right angles, and not just one. No its Trapezoid

Skew lines, parallel lines or an angle.

An angle is formed by two rays with a common endpoint.

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.

They are angles formed by the transversal line cutting through parallel lines

after a TON of research we came p with alternate exterior angles.

That is called an angle.

I'm sorry there is no possible way to make a parallel lines form a right angle in any sort of shape unless u where to bend one of the lines in which case they would no longer be parallel.

A perpendicular line is formed when two lines meet at a right angle. Opposite angles in a perpendicular line are parallel to each other.

In a circle, a central angle is formed by two radii. By definition, the measure of the intercepted arc is equal to the central angle.

Parallel refers to lines and not angles A right angle is formed by 2 lines that are perpendicular to each other and not parallel If you already have a line and you draw two lines which are at right angles to it, those two lines are parallel.
