A Rhombus is a square tilted to form a diamond shape

A rhombus.

Yes, but as a square. A square is a special kind of rectangle and also a special kind of rhombus.

Not necessarily. The definition for a rhombus is a polygon with four sides of equal length. Therefore, a square is a rhombus. However, any rhombus not as square does have two same sized acute and obtuse angles.

A rhombus is a special case of parallelogram (all 4 sides the same length). A square is a special case of rhombus (all 4 angles equal to 90°)

All four of the sides of a rhombus, whether it's a square or not, have the same length. However, any rhombus that's not a square doesn't have four equal angles.

A rhombus.

a rhombus, or if also angles are the same, a square

A rhombus has all four sides the same length and that goes to a square as well, so YES.

Yes, but as a square. A square is a special kind of rectangle and also a special kind of rhombus.

No, a square is a four sided polygon with all it's sides the same length and where each angle is a right-angle. A rhombus may or may not have right angles. So while a square is a rhombus, a rhombus is not necessarily a square.

Is a rhombus and a square is one type of rhombus.

A rectangle is a square if all sides are the same length. A rhombus is a square if all angles are right angles (90o).

Not necessarily. The definition for a rhombus is a polygon with four sides of equal length. Therefore, a square is a rhombus. However, any rhombus not as square does have two same sized acute and obtuse angles.

a rhombus is a kite. * * * * * A rhombus is not a kite. A rhombus is not a square because all four angles of a square are equal and those of a rhombus are not. Normally, a rhombus is defined as a quadrilateral all of whose sides are equal and whose opposite angles are the same. I am not sure that this excludes the case where these angles are two pairs of 90 degree angles and therefore, form a square. So, at a stretch, one could say that a square is a special kind of rhombus.
