A Quadrilateral is a four-sided closed figure in 2dimensional space made up of four line segments. Here are the following special types of quadrilateral:

  1. Parallelogram: A quadrilateral is called a parallelogram if the pair of opposite sides are parallel and equal in length. Also, the opposite angle are equal.
  2. Rhombus: A rhombus is a special type of quadrilateral having all the four sides equal and opposite sides parallel. Also, the opposite angles are equal.
  3. Square: A quadrilateral having all the four sides and angles equal is said to be a square. The four equal angles measures \(90^{\circ}\).
  4. Rectangle: A rectangle is a quadrilateral having opposite sides equal and parallel. The four angles are equal and measures to have \(90^{\circ}\)..
  5. Trapezium: A quadrilateral having exactly one pair of parallel sides.
