Is there a rule for naming quadrilaterals in English? What I am expected to know about are: square, rhombus, rectangle, parallelogram, trapezium, kite. But how do we name other quadrilaterals?

As in the following figure of a quadrilateral;

If the diagonals are stated to bisect each other, I thought this should hold (considering the bottommost triangle in blue lines);
a + b 2 + b a 2 = b
But this shows that all quadrilaterals have their diagonals bisecting each other, since this gives b = b , which implies it's true for all a and b . Which obviously isn't true.
Where did my reasoning go wrong?

Definition #1: an isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with exactly one pair of parallel sides and whose none parallel sides are congruent.
Definition #2: an isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with one pair of parallel sides and with the other pair of sides congruent.
a) Explain how isosceles trapezoid are related to rectangles under each Definition?
b) How are these Definitions related to the Definition of trapezoid ?
c) a quadrilateral has vertices at (-a,0), (a,0), (b,c) and (d,c). Under Definition #1, what conditions must be b and d satisfy if the quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid ? Under Definition #2, what conditions must be b and d satisfy if the quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid ?
d) Are the two Definitions equivalent? why or why not?

There is a rectangular piece of land that will be used for landscaping. It is 22x30 ft. It has a 1 ft. wide trench that is on the inside of the rectangle, and runs along the edges (like a frame) throughout the inner perimeter. Also it has a 4 ft. deep excavation that will be used for planting. What is the cubic feet measurement of this rectangle?
As a side note the answers on the multiple choice test ranged between 300 to 400. Not any less or more. Please advise with solution. I am stumped. None of my answers come close. I understand the volume of a rectangle is LxWxH.
