When all the vertices of a plane quadrilateral are exactly equal to 90 degrees it is is called a rectangle and, if all its sides are of equal length, that rectangle is called a square. So when a plane quadrilateral has all its vertices exactly equal to 90 degrees, but it does not have all its sides equal in length, it must be a rectangle but not a square.
