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.

A trapezoid can't have three right angles. A quadrilateral with three right angles must have a total of four right angles, since a quadrilateral's interior angles add up to 360. 360 - (3*90) = 90, so the fourth angle would have to be right as well. A quadrilateral with four right angles is not a trapezoid; instead it is a rectangle or a square.

No. If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent then it must be a rectangle (or square).
