# Every trapezium is a rectangle. State whether the statement is true or false.

**Solution:**

Given, Every trapezium is a __rectangle__.

We have to determine if the given statement is true or false.

A trapezium is a two-dimensional __quadrilateral__ having a pair of parallel opposite sides.

The opposite parallel sides are referred to as the base and the non-parallel sides are referred to as legs of the __trapezium__.

It is a closed plane shape having four sides and four corners.

A rectangle is a closed two-dimensional figure with four sides.

The opposite sides of a rectangle are equal and parallel to each other.

All angles are equal to 90 degrees.

The __diagonals__ of a rectangle are equal.

In a trapezium, only one pair of sides are parallel.

Therefore, every trapezium is not a rectangle.
