A rhombus is a polygon or a parallelogram which consists of four equal or congruent sides. Thus it is a quadrangular shape having its four sides equivalent and its contrary lines similar, with two opposite angles acute and two obtuse. More colloquially it may be explained as a diamond or lozenge shape. Rhombus does not particularly have right angles. So, all squares are rhombi, but all rhombi are not squares. Many claim that a square is not a rhombus but it also has equal supporters who believe that square is a special case of rhombus.

A rhombus often looks like a square that is being pushed over. The only difference in a square and rhombus are the right angles. The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular in nature. The adjacent angles of a rhombus are supplementary. A rhombus is a special case of a parallelogram.
