Trapezoids. All other quadrilaterals either have two pairs of parallel sides or none.

No. If there are only 2 parallel sides, then it's a trapezoid. It's nota parallelogram unless there are two pairs of parallel sides.

A trapezoid is different from other quadrilaterals that have 2 pairs of parallel sides in that a trapezoid has only 1 pair of parallel sides of different lengths.

Quadrilaterals are called parallelograms ONLY if both pairs of opposite sides are equal and parallel to each other.

No, only trapeziums (1 pair), parallelograms and squares (both pairs)

Any that are not a parallelogram (rhombus, rectangle, square). These would include all irregular quadrilaterals as well as trapezoids (trapeziums) which have only one set of parallel sides.

No, only trapeziums (1 pair), parallelograms and squares (both pairs)

There are more than 4 other types of quadrilaterals.A trapezoid has only one pair of parallel sides. All other quadrilaterals have no parallel sides or two pairs.

No, even though they are both quadrilaterals (having 4 sides), both pairs of sides of the rectangle are parallel; whereas, only one pair of sides on a trapezoid are parallel.

No because a trapezoid only has 1 pair of parallel sides whereas a parallelogram has 2 pairs of parallel sides but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals.

They are both 4 sided quadrilaterals but a trapezoid has only 1 pair of parallel sides whereas a parallelogram has 2 pairs of parallel sides.

They are both 4 sided quadrilaterals with a parallelogram having 2 pairs of parallel sides whereas a trapezium has only 1 pair of parallel sides of different lengths
