Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not true. To make a square without measuring angles, make sure all four sides are the same, then confirm the diagonals are the same. The first step confirms that the figure is a rhombus; the second ensures that rhombus is a square. The diagonals of every rhombus bisect one another, so answer a is no good. Answers c is nonsense, and d is not true.
