# A rhombus is a parallelogram in which __________ sides are equal. Fill in the blanks to make the statement true.

**Solution:**

Given, A rhombus is a __parallelogram__ in which __________ sides are equal.

We have to fill in the blanks to make the statement true.

In a __rhombus__, opposite sides are parallel and the opposite angles are equal.

All the sides of a rhombus are equal in length, and the __diagonals__ bisect each other at right angles.

A rhombus can be defined as a special parallelogram as it fulfills the requirements of a parallelogram, i.e. a __quadrilateral__ with two pairs of parallel sides.

A rhombus has all four sides equal just like a __square__. That is why it is also known as a tilted square.

Therefore, all sides of a rhombus are equal.
