Thanks,

Had a look, right answer on the book is right-angle triangle.

But the answer could be the rectangle or parallelogram also.

ie. the question seems to be wrongly worded, i agree right angle triangle will always have one different side.

Many thanks.

The question is "Which of these cannot be Bulu's shape?" A right angled trinagle is the only one which COULD NOT have all sides equal as rectangles and parallelograms could have 4 equal sides too even if they usually don't. Squares are a subset of rectangles, which in turn are a subset of parallelograms - so a square is actually an example of a square, a rectangle and a parallelogram all at the same time.

Thankyou,

Question confuses, as it says: All its sides are the same length?

Thanks for the explanation though, now I will try and explain a 10 year old this fact!
