I think the difference is that a square (which is a rhombus) needs 4 right angles whereas a rhombus does not.

Square is also correct - a poorly worded question!

that is true but the question doesnt mention angles ? or whether you needed one or two parallel pairs of sides ?

A square is a rhombus with right angles - as a Maths teacher I would say it is poorly worded.

I am not so sure that RHOMBUS is the correct answer. A RHOMBUS has all four equal sides and opposite sides parallel. The correct answer for the question, as worded, is, IMHO, a PARALELOGRAM.

My dd said 1) a square 2)a parallelagram, 3) a rhombus.

I feel pleased to read she may be on the right track ... may be ...
