By joining the ends of the two diameters, we get a rectangle.

Therefore, by measuring, we find that AB=CD and BC=AD, i.e, pairs of opposite sides are equal and also \angle A = \angle B = \angle C = \angle D = 90^{\circ}.

and each angle is fo 90^{\circ}.

Hence, it is a rectangle:

If the diameters are perpendicular to each other, then by joining the ends of two diameters, we get a square.

Then, by measuring the length of the side we find that AB=BC=CD=DA. that is all sides are of same length also, \angle A = \angle B = \angle C = \angle D = 90^{\circ}, that is each angle is 90^{\circ}.

Hence, it is a square:
