Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Parallelogram is not possible, because it has 2 pairs of parallels.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now, we have A.) It is shaped as a trapezoid with adjacent angles which are congruent. and C.) It is shaped as a trapezoid with two pairs of supplementary adjacent angles. Let's draw A) dw:1336334845861:dw That would imply that this trapezoid is a rectangle, since adjacent angles are congruent, and a rectangle doesn't meet the requirements either.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3C.) It is shaped as a trapezoid with two pairs of supplementary adjacent angles. Two? So two of them must be 90 degrees, since supplementary angles = x+y=180 dw:1336334972832:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It only has a pair of opposite side parallel; The adjacent sides of the figure are not congruent. Thus, statement C is true.
