In this worksheet, we will practice sorting and classifying quadrilaterals by their properties and naming them as trapezoids, parallelograms, rhombuses, rectangles, or squares in as many ways as possible

Q1:

A field is in the shape of a quadrilateral, with two straight footpaths connecting opposite corners. The footpaths cross at right angles. Given just this information, what can you say about the shape of the field?

• AThere is not enough information to identify the shape.
• BIt is a kite.
• CIt is a square.
• DIt is a rhombus.
• EIt is a rectangle.

Q2:

Is the following quadrilateral a rectangle? • AYes
• BNo

Q3:

In which two quadrilaterals are all the sides equal in length?

• Arhombuses, squares
• Brectangles, squares
• Crectangles, parallelograms
• Drectangles, rhombuses

Q4:

• Asquare, rectangle
• Brectangle, trapezoid
• Csquare, rectangle, trapezoid
• Dsquare, rectangle, rhombus
• Esquare, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram

Q5:

Which of the following statements about a trapezoid is true?

• AIt is a quadrilateral with 1 pair of parallel sides that are equal in length.
• BIt is a quadrilateral with 1 pair of sides equal in length.
• CIt is a quadrilateral with 1 pair of parallel sides.
• DIt is an equilateral polygon.
• EIt is not a quadrilateral.

Q6:

Name the quadrilaterals which have all four sides perpendicular to their adjacent sides.

• Asquares, rectangles, and trapezoids
• Bsquares and rectangles
• Csquares, rectangles, rhombuses, and parallelograms
• Dsquares, rectangles, and rhombuses
• Erectangles and trapezoids

Q7:

What kind of quadrilateral is the shape shown here? • Arhombus and rectangle
• Brectangle and square
• Cparallelogram and rectangle
• Drectangle only
• Eparallelogram and rhombus

Q8:

Which of the following labels the given quadrilateral? • Asquare
• Bparallelogram
• Crhombus
• Dtriangle
• Ecircle

Q9:

Fill in the blanks: A quadrilateral has diagonals.

Q10:

State which of these quadrilaterals have exactly one pair of parallel sides: square, rectangle, trapezoid, rhombus, parallelogram.

• Atrapezoid, parallelogram
• Bsquare, rectangle, trapezoid
• Ctrapezoid
• Dsquare, rectangle
• Esquare, rectangle, rhombus
