A quadrilateral

No

A four sided polygon where the opposite sides are parallel to each other (they must also by congruent). This also makes the opposite angles congruent. __ /_/ Sort of like that.

A square or a rectangle

It cannot be a quadrilateral because if one pair of opposite sides are congruent and parallel, it is a parallelogram and so the other two sides are also (mutually) congruent and parallel. Any polygon with 5 or more sides will have an irregular form which satisfies these conditions.
