Any shape that is not a triangle may have 2 parallel sides, although regular polygons only have parallel sides when the number of sides is even. For a quadrilateral, a trapezoid(UK trapezium) has 1 set of parallel sides and a parallelogram (either a rhombus, rectangle, or square) has 2 sets of parallel sides.
