it has 2 pairs of equal sides.

Technically from this, considering it is a one marker, it could be a kite or quadrilateral.. ?

Here is the question :

A kite is a quadrilateral. A quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides can be a square or a rhombus. How do you tell these apart?

A kite has two pairs of equal length sides that are adjacent to each other.

A rhombus is a special case of a kite where all 4 sides are the same length.

Both a kite and a rhombus are quadrilaterals because they both have 4 sides.

Perhaps something to do with the angles between the lines?
