yes if you're looking at sides ...
Rectangles: opposite sides equal
Rhombus: All equal
so... we're left with 1 and 3

now look at diagonals ...
in a rectangle do the diagonals bisect each other ... (cut each other in half)

perpendicular means they intersect at 90 degree angles...?
|dw:1348677416596:dw|
do all 4 angles made by the intersecting diagonals look the same ?

right ... in a rectangle: diagonals are congruent to each other ... and bisect each other
.... But they are NOT necessarily perpendicular to each other
if they were perpendicular ... the rectangle would have to be a Square

In a Rhombus diagonal are perpendiular ... AND they bisect each other
.... the diagonals just don't have to be congruent to each other.
if they were congruent the rhombus would have to be a square.
so option 1.
