IM A SENIOR THAT NEEDS TO GRADUATE! PLEASE HELP ME! PLEASE! Cherie studied the properties of a square and a rectangle and concluded that a square can be called a rectangle but a rectangle cannot be called a square. Which statement supports her conclusion? The opposite sides in a square must be parallel and equal unlike in a rectangle. All angles in a square must be equal unlike in a rectangle. The diagonals in a square must be congruent unlike in a rectangle. The diagonals in a square must be perpendicular unlike in a rectangle.
