# Any polygon with two pairs of parallel opposite sides is a parallelogram. True or False?

Parallelograms are interesting shapes with many interesting properties. Even the shape rectangle is a type of parallelogram. They have an immensely large number of applications across many fields including engineering and science. They are one of the most steady shapes. Let's explore one of their properties in this blog.

## Answer: It is false that any polygon with two pairs of parallel opposite sides is a parallelogram.

Let's understand the answer in detail.

**Explanation:**

It is true that a parallelogram has two pairs of parallel sides.

But, however, not all polygons having two pairs of parallel sides are parallelograms.

It is necessary for a parallelogram to be a four-sided polygon.

There can be other polygons that have more than 4 sides but have only two pairs of parallel sides, which can't be called a parallelogram.

### Hence, it is false that any polygon with two pairs of parallel opposite sides is a parallelogram.
