A rhombus has all angles equal to 90° but a square has opposite angles equal.
A rhombus has diagonals which are unequal but a square has diagonals which are equal.
A rhombus has equal diagonals but a square has unequal diagonals.
A rhombus has non perpendicular diagonals but a square has perpendicular diagonal.

The first one is definitely not, a rhombus's angles are not all 90°
The last one is wrong, because a rhombus has perpendicular diagonals.
The third one is wrong, because a square certainly has equal diagonals.
So yes, it is B.
Just think over the properties of a rhombus and square

When an altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle, the lengths of the segments of the hypotenuse are 16 and 25. What is the length of the altitude?

Do you get that AD splits ∆ABC into two similar triangles which are similar to the large triangle?

Ok, so then AB/BC = BD/AD right?
apple_pi

So then AB/41 = 25/AD

Similarly, AC/BC = DC/AD right?

AC/41 = 16/AD
