Best Answer

A parallelogram has opposite sides equal and parallel.

A rectangle means the angles are all 90o as well as opposite sides being equal and parallel

A rhombus means all sides are equal in length as well as opposite sides being parallel

A parallelogram with angles of 90o (also a rectangle) and all sides equal (also a rhombus) is a square.
