We will first list all the properties of rectangle:-

1) A rectangle is a parallelogram.

2) The opposite sides are parallel.

3) The opposite sides are equal.

4) All angles are right angles.

5) The diagonals bisect each other at right angles.

Now we will list all the properties of square:-

1) A square is a parallelogram.

2) Opposite sides are parallel.

3) All sides are equal

4) All angles are right angles

5) The diagonals bisect each other at right angles.

Now since all the properties of the rectangle as well as the square are the same except for the length of sides.

So if all the sides of a rectangle become equal then it will become a square.

Hence a square can be thought of as a special rectangle.
