1. All statements are true.

A rectangle simply requires that a four-edged figure has 4 right angles and two sets of parallel lines. A square is a special case-- that all four sides are the same length, but it's still a rectangle.

It then follows that if all squares are rectangles and all rectangles are parallelograms, that all squares are parallelograms. (This is modus ponens, more commonly known as the (hypothetical) syllogism. You don't need to know this, but it's an interesting topic... to me anyway, lol.)
