The self-contradictory answer is correct to the extent that it is nonsensical. A rhombus is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides and all sides of equal length. A kite cannot have any parallel sides.

### Is a rhombus always a kite?

A rhombus is never a kite.
A rhombus is a parallelogram with all its sides equal in length.
Opposite angles are therefore equal and the rhombus is symmetrical
about each of its diagonals.
A kite is a quadrilateral having two pairs of adjacent sides
equal in length. Only one pair of opposite angles is equal and the
kite is symmetrical about the line that bisects the unequal
opposite angles. A kite does not have any parallel sides.
