    What is the name of a four sided polygon?

    • A.

      Triangle

    • B.

      Pentagon

    • D.

      Quadrilateral

    Correct Answer
    D. Quadrilateral
    Explanation
    A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides. It is the correct answer because it accurately describes the shape being asked for in the question. A triangle has three sides, an octagon has eight sides, and a pentagon has five sides, so they are not the correct names for a four sided polygon.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is the least number of sides a polygon can have?

    • A.

      Two

    • B.

      Three

    • C.

      Four

    • D.

      Five

    Correct Answer
    B. Three
    Explanation
    A polygon is a closed figure with straight sides. In order for a figure to be considered a polygon, it must have at least three sides. Therefore, the least number of sides a polygon can have is three.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How many angles are there in a triangle?

    • A.

      Three

    • B.

      Five

    • C.

      Six

    • D.

      Ten

    Correct Answer
    A. Three
    Explanation
    A triangle is a polygon with three sides, and each side of a triangle forms an angle with the adjacent side. Therefore, a triangle has three angles.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    A stop sign is what type of polygon?

    • A.

      Quadrilateral

    • B.

      Octagon

    • C.

      Hexagon

    • D.

      Pentagon

    Correct Answer
    B. Octagon
    Explanation
    A stop sign is an octagon because it has eight sides. The shape of a stop sign is specifically designed to be easily recognizable and to convey a sense of urgency to drivers. The octagonal shape helps to distinguish a stop sign from other road signs and signals, making it clear that drivers must come to a complete stop at that intersection.

    Rate this question:

    Can a polygon have cruved sides?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    A polygon is a closed figure with straight sides. By definition, it does not have curved sides. Therefore, the correct answer is "no."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What makes a polygon a regular polygon?

    • A.

      All sides are the same lenght

    • B.

      All angles are congruent

    • C.

      All angles are 90 degrees

    • D.

      All angles and sides are the same

    Correct Answer
    D. All angles and sides are the same
    Explanation
    A regular polygon is defined as having all angles and sides that are the same. This means that every angle in the polygon is congruent and every side has the same length. This property distinguishes a regular polygon from other polygons where the angles or sides may vary.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following is NOT a polygon?

    • A.

      Square

    • B.

      Pentagon

    • C.

      Circle

    • D.

      Triangle

    Correct Answer
    C. Circle
    Explanation
    A circle is not a polygon because it does not have straight sides. A polygon is a closed figure made up of straight line segments. A square, pentagon, and triangle all have straight sides and are considered polygons. However, a circle is a curved shape with no straight sides, therefore it is not a polygon.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What type of polygon is this?

    • A.

      Quadrilateral

    • B.

      Pentagon

  • 10. 

    Is this polygon a regular polygon?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The given answer is "no" because a regular polygon is defined as a polygon with all sides and angles equal. Since the question does not provide any information about the polygon, we cannot determine if it is regular or not. Therefore, the correct answer is "no" as we cannot confirm that the polygon is regular.
