Solution

Square, rectangle, and rhombus are the quadrilaterals which have both line and rotational symmetry of order more than 1. A square has 4 lines of symmetry and rotational symmetry of order 4. A rectangle has 2 lines of symmetry and rotational symmetry of order 2. A rhombus has 2 lines of symmetry and rotational symmetry of order 2.
