No. it’s definitely not a parallelogram.

As it’s not mentioned that whether 2 non adjacent or opposite sides are of 7cm each.

What’s the definition of a parallelogram?

A quadrilateral which has 2 pair of parallel sides or a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel to each other having the same measurements is called a parallelogram.

That’s what the reason is to say that it’s not a parallelogram as we don’t know whether exactly the question mentions about opposite sides or adjacent ones.

Yes, if it was mentioned that the quadrilateral has 3 of it’s sidelengths 7cm, 7cm and 5cm in which one pair of opposite sides measure 7cm, then it would definitely be a parallelogram.

Yet, it’s not the particular answer.
