    Every parallelogram is 4 sided. Yes it is a parallelogram, but there is something special about a rhombus that not every parallelogram has.

    first u need to property of rhombus, a rhombus has all 4 sides equal and opposite angles congruent.

    How would finding the property of a Rhombus help me figure out if I have to measure all sides or one of the other answers?

    This is choice A. As you can see, specifying the angle measures of a rhombus does not guarantee a unique rhombus. |dw:1438123031947:dw|

    Since in a rhombus all sides are congruent, you must mention the length of one side. That is a must. That is not all you need for a unique rhombus, but one side length is a must.

    Any choice that does not mention one side is not the answer.

    can there be multiple options

    I can only have one answer.

    No. Only one option is correct. All others do not define a unique rhombus.

    Ok. So far you know you need a single side length. Which options can you eliminate?

    So would C be the right answer then?

    If you mention one side length, all sides must be that length. If you mention one angle, then the opposite angle must be the same. Then the other two opposite angles are fixed.
