Solution

In square, rectangle and rhombus, opposite sides are parallel and equal. Also, opposite angles are equal, i.e. they all are parallelograms.

But in trapezium, there is only one pair of parallel sides, i.e. it is not a parallelogram. Therefore, trapezium has different design.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
