Without knowing their arrangement or the angles involved, all you can say is that it is a quadrilateral (4 sides). If the long sides are opposite, parallel, and equal in length -- and if the short sides are opposite, parallel, and equal in length -- you have a parallelogram. If all of the angles of the parallelogram are right angles, you have a rectangle.

A quadrilateral is not necessarily a rectangle. The only time this is not true is in the case of a square on a quadrilateral without four 90 degree angles.

Without the triangles of a tangram all that is left is the parallelogram and the small square. So using only the small square yes (the small square itself), otherwise with the square and the parallelogram from a tangram no.

Anything without four sides, since a quadrilateral is a polygon with all four sides. An example of a shape not a quadrilateral would be a triangle.

Parallelograms have parallel diagonals (these include squares, rectangles, rhombi, an trapezoids). Parallel lines are lines with the same slope that could carry on infinitely without intersecting. A parallelogram can have 1 or 2 sets of parallel lines.

All "parallelograms" have opposite sides that are parallel. If all four sides have an equal length and the angles are not all right angles, it is a rhombus. If there is any right angle, then they are all right angles and the parallelogram is a square.(note : it is not possible for a quadrilateral to have four equal sides without being one of these parallelograms.)

Impossible. You cannot have an obtuse angle without an acute angle in a quadrilateral.
