Question
Hello sir

Sir sqaure also has four equal sides and rombhus also has 4 equal sides then what is the difference between them.

Answer
Hi Apsara meti,

Both a square and a rhombus are quadrilaterals.  A square must have four equal sides and four equal angles; the angles are necessarily right angles.  A rhombus need only have four equal sides.  As a result, every square is also a rhombus.  However, not every rhombus is a square.

Thanks for asking,
