Questions 1, 2 & 4 by Jasper

Question 1

‘A square is a rhombus but a rhombus is not a square’.
This statement is true as a square has 4 equal sides. And the 4 sides are all parallel.
A rhombus has 4 equal sides BUT it may not have right angles.

Question 2

A ) A square and a parallelogram are quadrilaterals. X

B ) Opposite sides of a square and a parallelogram are parallel. X

C ) A trapezoid has one pair of parallel sides. X

D ) All the above √ [Answer]

EXPLAINATION

A) A square and parallelogram both have 4 sides, hence they are quadrilaterals.

B) The sides of the square and parallelogram is perpendicular to each other. Hence , the opposite sides of a square and a parallelogram are parallel.

C) A trapezoid has one pair of parallel sides because the other two sides are not parallel or perpendicular to each other.

Since all points A,B and C are correct, All of the statements above are correct.

Question 4

‘All parallelograms are squares?’
I do not agree with this statement as parallelograms has 4 sides, BUT they do not have right angles. Hence i do not think the statement is right.
