For a quadrilateral to be square:
1# all interior angles should be right angle
2# adjacent side should be equal

St 1: suffice only 1 not 2. INSUFFICIENT
St 2: suffice only 2 not 1. INSUFFICIENT

St 1 & St 2: suffice both. ANSWER

Option C

C?

From ST.1 , can be rectangle or square.

From St2. Insuff.

All angles are equal to 90 deg and a=b, sufficient to prove it is square.

Hi,

1)Quadrilateral ABCD has four right angles --Can be Square or Rectangle-Not Suff

2)a = b Can be Square or Rhombus or Kite

(1)+(2) Gives Square

Hence C

Okay so I was totally thrown off by the second statement. Why did I not rhombus...anyways, there is also something I wanted to ask regarding this question

Is Quadrilateral ABCD above a square?

(1) Quadrilateral ABCD has four right angles

(2) a = b


If we look at statement (1)- sorry if this is a question worth admonishing someone with response containing a very obvious and fundamental answer, but couldn't four right angles also be in a rectangle? From this reasoning, I concluded statement one was insufficient.
