Question 1:

'A square is a rhombus but a rhombus is not a square'.

This statement is true as every square has 4 equal sides like the rhombus, but not all rhombuses have right angles like the square.

Question 2:

Which of the given statements is correct? Justify your answer/s with examples.

A ) A square and a parallelogram are quadrilaterals.

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

C ) A trapezoid has one pair of parallel sides.

D ) All the above

Statement A and B is correct. A quadrilateral has four sides which a square and parallelogram has. Both a square and a parallelogram has two pairs of parallel lines.

Question 4:

'All parallelograms are squares?' Do you agree with this statement?

Justify your answer with example/s.

I disagree that all parallelograms are squares. A square has to have right angles while not all parallelograms have a right angle. However, a square can be a parallelogram as it has 2 pairs of parallel lines.

Well done Stacey:

ReplyDeleteQuestion 2: good to explain what is a trapezoid. A diagram will be useful as well.

Okay(:

ReplyDeleteA trapezoid is a shape with no sides parallel. So any quadrilateral drawn at random would most likely be a trapezoid.
