Best Answer

A parallelogram has two pairs of sides that are parallel when a trapezoid only has one. A parallelogram's opposite sides are congruent and opposite angles are congruent. A trapezoid has no opposite congruent sides or angles, unless it's an isosceles trapezoid, which base angles are congruent. They both have four sides and four interior angles that add up to 360 degrees.
