  1. A) Sometimes
    - Parallelogram has sides that parallel to each other. Therefore this can be a rhombus, square or rectangle.
    B) Always
    -Sides of a square are all equal. All the angles are right. If you draw 1 diagonal you get a right triangle. A^2+B^2=C^2. This will be the same for the other diagonal as well. Because all the sides are equal so will the diagonals.
    C) Always
    -Similar consept as part (b).
    D) Always
    -Can't explain this one sorry. It was just a rule in our Geometry class.
