In North American usage, a trapezoid is a four-sided figure with two parallel sides. Outside of North America, the same figure is called a trapezium. In general usage, the name is applied only to figures that have exactly two parallel sides. Figures that have two pairs of parallel sides are called by their more-specific name, e.g. parallelogram, rectangle, etc. depending on their angles and side lengths.

* Both are four sided figures,so both are quadrilaterals. * In trapezium, one pair of opposite sides are parallel,so as in parallelogram its opposite sides are parallel. *both have at least 2 parallel sides

The circle doesn't fit because it is a curve. The other figures are drawn with line segments; they're polygons. In fact, the other figures are all quadrilaterals.

.Four sided figures are called quadrilaterals.A quadrilateral with opposite sides equal and parallel is called a parallelogram. The corresponding solid is called a parallelepiped. A parallelogram, with all its angles right angles is called a rectangle. The solid version of the rectangle is called a cuboid. A rectangle with all its sides equal is called a square, which is, in 3d, a cube.The triangle creeps into this page because we need to know its area in order to compute the area of a trapezoid.A quadrilateral with only two of its sides parallel is called a trapezium, or trapezoid. There is a confusing difference in meaning between the USA and elsewhere with these terms, where a trapezium in the USA means a quadrilateral with no sides parallel.Proclus, who wrote the commentaries for Euclid's Elements, called a trapezium figure with exactly two sides parallel, and a trapezoid one with no sides parallel. However, in 1795, Hutton's Mathematical Dictionary accidentally reversed the two definitions, and in USA and other countries, the trapezium became a trapezoid and the trapezoid became a trapezium.
