Hint: First, we will define a quadrilateral. Then, we will discuss different types of quadrilaterals. Drawing each one will give us an idea of the real life objects we are looking for. Then, we will give 2 such examples of objects that look like a quadrilateral from real like objects. Complete step by step solution: First we will have a look at the basic definition of a quadrilateral. Quadrilaterals can be defined as a closed, two-dimensional shape that has four sides, four vertices, and four. It can be regular or irregular, it does not have any specific shape besides the fact that we can define different types of a quadrilateral with specific shapes like rectangles, trapezium, squares, rhombus, and many more. Now we will look at different types of quadrilaterals one by one, first of all, let's see the major properties of parallelograms. 1. Parallelogram: We can see that the opposite sides are parallel, opposites sides are equal and opposite angles are equal. 2. Square: We can see that all sides are equal, all angles are equal and measure 90∘. 3. Rectangle: We can see that the opposite sides are parallel, opposites sides are equal and all angles are equal and measure 90∘. 4. Rhombus: We can see that all sides are equal, opposite angles are equal. 5. Trapezium: We can see that the opposite sides are parallel, adjacent angles add up to 180∘. Now, let us look for examples from real life objects. We get that floor tiles are quadrilaterals, they are available in different sizes and shapes like square and rectangle. Another example would be a playing card which is mostly rectangular in shape. Note: Note that all the rectangles and rhombus are parallelograms and all the squares are rectangles. The word quadrilateral is made out of two Latin words "quad" which means four and the word "latus" means sides. Some more examples are chess board, piece of paper, mouse pad, doors, calendars, books and so on.
