 Posts: 2 First: May 23, 2012 Last: May 7, 2013 It's a trick question. In geometry a parallelogram is a four-sided figure in which the opposite sides are parallel. A square is a parallelogram with four equal sides with 90-degree angles in the corners where the sides meet. So all of them are parallelograms, but they are also all squares.
