Q1.) The statement is true. *{ 'A square is a rhombus but a rhombus is not a square'. }*

A square is a special kind of rhombus. In fact, a square is also a special kind of rectangle. Just like the rhombus which is a special kind of parallelogram, the rectangle is also a special kind of parallelogram thus the rhombus is also a special kind of parallelogram.

"A square is a special kind of rhombus." Why is this so?

This is because the square has 4 equal sides like the rhombus but the special feature of the square is that every angle in it is a right angle.

Q3.)It is a trapezium.

A trapezium has only one pair of side which are parallel and the other two are not.

5.)If ABCD is a parallelogram, and if E is midpoint of AD and F is midpoint of BC, BFDE must be a parallelogram. This is because BF and ED are equal and parallel.

I like the point when you highlighted that a square is a special kind of rhombus. My question : why not a rhombus is a special kind of square? Are these two statements different? Is rhombus a special member of the square family?

ReplyDeleteThink about this

A rhombus is not a square as it does not have a right angle in its all four angle
