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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Square: A quadrilateral having all the four sides and angles equal is said to be a square. The four equal angles measures \(90^{\circ}\)
. - Rectangle: A rectangle is a quadrilateral having opposite sides equal and parallel. The four angles are equal and measures to have \(90^{\circ}\)
.. - Trapezium: A quadrilateral having exactly one pair of parallel sides.
