Quadrilaterals are two-dimensional shapes that have four sides. Quadrilaterals that have only one set of parallel sides are called trapezoids.

No, a triangle will never have parallel sides.

They are quadrilaterals which have two pairs of parallel sides.

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

Some types of quadrilaterals don't have parallel sides. Such as a diamond or a kite.

Quadrilaterals are two-dimensional shapes that have four sides. Quadrilaterals that have only one set of parallel sides are called trapezoids.

Trapezoids make up the set of quadrilaterals with 2 pairs of parallel sides.

It is called a parallelogram.

No, a triangle will never have parallel sides.

They are quadrilaterals which have two pairs of parallel sides.

A trapezoid has one pair of parallel sides. All other quadrilaterals have no parallel sides or two pairs of parallel sides.

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.

Sometimes, but not necessarily.

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

Quadrilaterals usually have special names only if they DO have parallel sides, or some other special property. You might just call it "quadrilateral", or "a quadrilateral with no parallel sides".
