Text Solution




A square is a quadrilateral since it has four sides.


Parallelogram- properties

(1) Opposite sides are equal.

(2) Opposite angles are equal.

(3) Diagonals bisect one another.

A square is parallelogram, since it contains both pairs of opposite sides equal.


Rhombus - properties

i)A parallelogram with sides of equal length.

ii)The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors of one another.

A square is a rhombus since

i) its four sides are of same length.

ii)the diagonals of a square are perpendicular bisectors of each other.
