[quote="Bunuel"]POLYGONS
--------------------------------------------------------

A square is both a rhombus (equal sides) and a rectangle (equal angles) and therefore has all the properties of both these shapes, namely:
The diagonals of a square bisect each other.
• The diagonals of a square bisect its angles.
• The diagonals of a square are perpendicular.
• Opposite sides of a square are both parallel and equal.
• All four angles of a square are equal. (Each is 360/4 = 90 degrees, so every angle of a square is a right angle.)
• The diagonals of a square are equal.

It might be worth clarifying that the diagonals of rhombi or rectangles do not bisect their respective angles. The above section could be mistaken to suggest so since you mention that the list of properties is derived from a combination of rectangle and rhombus properties..

I recently sat for the GMAT and got a couple of questions on parallelogram. What was being tested was knowledge of simple concepts and properties of some quadrilaterals. To my disgust, I had not revised the Quadrilateral properties before the exam and ended up answering both the questions wrong. I later realised that both the questions were very simple and could have been answered correctly if only I had remembered a few things about these polygons. In my attempt to pay back to GC, and to atone to my own sins :twisted: I have attached here a table and a Quadrilateral relations tree that you must must know before going for the exam. And this should suffice. All the best.
