Questions and Answers
1.
All of the following options are a type of quadrilateral except,
A.
Rhombus
B.
Square
C.
Triangle
D.
Trapezoid
Correct Answer C. Triangle
Explanation A triangle is not a type of quadrilateral because a quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides, while a triangle is a polygon with three sides. The other options, rhombus, square, and trapezoid, are all types of quadrilaterals because they have four sides.

2.
Which one of the following are a quadrilateral with 4 equal sides and right angles.
A.
Trapezoid
B.
Square
C.
Rectangle
D.
Parallelogram
Correct Answer B. Square
Explanation A square is a quadrilateral with 4 equal sides and right angles. It is the only option among the given choices that satisfies both conditions. A trapezoid can have different side lengths and angles, a rectangle has 4 right angles but its sides are not necessarily equal, and a parallelogram can have equal sides but its angles are not necessarily right angles. Therefore, the correct answer is square.

3.
A quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides and 4 right angles.
A.
Trapezoid
B.
Square
C.
Rectangle
D.
Rhombus
Correct Answer C. Rectangle
Explanation A rectangle is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides and 4 right angles. It is the only option that satisfies all the given conditions. A trapezoid has only one pair of parallel sides, a square has equal sides but not necessarily parallel sides, and a rhombus has equal sides but not necessarily right angles. Therefore, the correct answer is rectangle.

Which of the set of figure shows a group of quadrilateral?
A.
Option 1
B.
Option 2
C.
Option 3
D.
Option 4
Correct Answer A. Option 1
Explanation Option 1 shows a group of four figures, each of which is a quadrilateral. Therefore, Option 1 is the correct answer as it displays a group of quadrilaterals.

5.
Which of the following statements about quadrilateral is not true?
A.
A quadrilateral has 4 sides, 4 angles and 4 vertices.
B.
B. The sum of all the interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360Ā°.
C.
C. A quadrilateral can be classified into Parallelograms, Squares, Rectangles, rhombuses and trapezoids.
D.
D. quadrilateral is a two-dimensional shape which has 3 sides.
Correct Answer D. D. quadrilateral is a two-dimensional shape which has 3 sides.
Explanation A quadrilateral is a two-dimensional shape that has 4 sides, not 3 sides. Therefore, statement D is not true.
Rate this question:
6.
The interior angles of quadrilaterals add to ___ degrees.
Correct Answer 360
Explanation The interior angles of a quadrilateral always add up to 360 degrees. This is a property of quadrilaterals and can be proven mathematically. Each angle in a quadrilateral contributes to the total sum of 360 degrees, regardless of the specific shape or size of the quadrilateral. Therefore, the correct answer is 360.

7.
A ____ quadrilateral features 2 pairs of adjacent sides that are of equal length (much like a ___ you can fly.)
Correct Answer Kite
Explanation A kite is a type of quadrilateral that has two pairs of adjacent sides that are of equal length. This is similar to a kite that you can fly, where the two longer sides and the two shorter sides are equal in length.

8.
Quadrilaterals with 2 sets of parallel side are called ________?
A.
Square
B.
Rectangle
C.
Rhombus
D.
ParallelogramĀ
Correct Answer D. ParallelogramĀ
Explanation Quadrilaterals with 2 sets of parallel sides are called parallelograms. This means that opposite sides of a parallelogram are parallel to each other. Square, rectangle, and rhombus are also types of quadrilaterals, but they have specific characteristics that differentiate them from parallelograms. A square has all sides equal and all angles equal to 90 degrees. A rectangle has opposite sides equal and all angles equal to 90 degrees. A rhombus has all sides equal, but opposite angles are equal, not necessarily 90 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is parallelogram.

9.
The perimeter of a square is __ times the length of one side.
A.
4
B.
8
C.
2
D.
16
Correct Answer A. 4
Explanation The perimeter of a square is equal to the sum of all its sides. Since a square has four equal sides, the perimeter will be four times the length of one side. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.
Rate this question:
10.
A quadrilateral with 4 right angles is a
A.
Square
B.
Rectangle
C.
All of the above
D.
None
Correct Answer C. All of the above
Explanation A quadrilateral with 4 right angles is a square because a square has all sides equal in length and all angles equal to 90 degrees. Additionally, a quadrilateral with 4 right angles is also a rectangle because a rectangle has opposite sides equal in length and all angles equal to 90 degrees. Therefore, both square and rectangle satisfy the condition of having 4 right angles, so the correct answer is "All of the above".
