### What is the Euclidean Parallel Axiom?

The Euclidean Parallel Axiom is as stated below:
If a line segment intersects two straight lines forming two
interior angles on the same side that sum to less than two right
angles, then the two lines, if extended indefinitely, meet on that
side on which the angles sum to less than two right angles.

### Why is a trapezoid not a rectangle?

A rectangle has four right angles, two parallel pairs of line
segments, and the lines are perpendicular. A trapezoid has one pair
of parallel angles, and the angles do not have to be right,
although a trapezoid with a right angle is called a right angle
trapezoid, and a trapezoid with no parallel segments is a
trapezium.

### What shape has parallel lines 4 square corners 90 angles?

A square "corner" is 90 degrees, (assuming you meant 90 degrees,
not 90 angles), and has parallel lines, thus, it must be a
parallelogram! A parallelogram that has right angles, is a
rectangle. Technically, all that is needed to know is 4
right angles, since all right angles implicate parallel lines and
90 degree angles.
