Yes. A figure which is both a rhombus and a rectangle is commonly called a square.

A rectangle and a rhombus are both quadrilaterals with two pairs of parallel sides.

Yes. A square is both a rhombus and a rectangle. A rectangles is a figure with four right angles, and all squares do indeed have four right angles. A rhombus has four equal sides, and all squares meet this requirement.

A rectangle can sometimes be a rhombus, as a square is both a rectangle and a rhombus. However, if all sides are congruent, and it has right angles, it is a square and therefore not a rectangle. So, the answer is no, although it may be argued to be yes. Wikipedia, in fact, mentions that a square is both a rectangle and a rhombus; the definition of rectangle there is a quadrilateral with four right angles, thereby not excluding the special case of a rectangular rhombus, or a square. A rhombus is not normally a square but it could be.

Sometimes a Rectangle can be a Rhombus.

A Rectangle is a four sided figure in which the internal angles are 90 degrees. A Rhombus is a four sided figure in which all sideshave the same length

They both have parallel lines and they have only 2 sides that match up. Also a square is a rhombus and a rectangle, so a rhombus can be a rectangle, but a rhombus cannot be a square and either can a rectangle.
