A geometric figure that has three line segments for sides is a triangle. Rectangles and squares are made of four line segments, while a circle is made out of a pair of arcs.

If you mean one pair of parallel lines, then you're talking about a trapezoid.

Which pair. Of line is parallel fghj

Many polygons, such as squares, rectangles, rhombi, parallelograms, etc. have more than 1 pairs of parallel line segments. Trapezoids have only 1 pair of parallel line segments. These few shapes are just quadrilaterals, other polygons also have more than 1 pair of parallel line segments (e.g. regularhexagons, octagons, etc.). Triangles never have any parallel line segments.

Exactly one pair.

name one pair of perpendiclur line segments?

A trapezoid has 1 pair of opposite parallel lines of different lengths.

A pair of perpendicular line segments is not shown among the pictures you've submitted.

Yes, it has sides that are straight line segments. Exactly one pair of opposite sides is parallel. Polygons do not have curved sides.

Technically, lines are continuous, so parallelograms are actually composed of line segments. The line segments composing the sides of the parallelogram, come in two pairs in 2D space. Each pair is composed of two line segments that are parallel to each other, but do not occupy the same line. The two pares of line segments must all meet to then form a quadrilateral.

One pair of opposite sides: they may be top and bottom or two sides, or they could both be skew.
