How about Rhombus ?

Don't they have all four sides equal ?

I am not sure about the length of the diagonal, but I know the diagonals are perpendicular..

Any thoughts ?

Diagonals of a Rhombus are not equal. Square is a special kind of Rhombus whose diagnols are equal.

See this.

Guys, correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks ps_dahiya. Clarified with rhombus.

Now the statements can interpreted as

Statement 1 : Square or Parallelogram or Rhombus
Statement2: Square or rectangle

Combining both gives Square go with C.
