That way there could be many solutions..
1.A rhombus is a quadrilateral but a quadrilateral is not a rhombus
Similarly many pairs like
Square - Quadrilateral
Rectangle - Quadrilateral
Isoscles Triangle-Triangle
Equilateral Triangle-Triangle
Right Triangle-Triangle
..and lot more

Good one, but I agree that there are MANY answers to this.

math isnt even necessary. along the same lines of Y is not necessarily X - a spoon is a utensil but a utensil is not (necessarily) a spoon. or any inclusive thing to a larger group. the list goes on and on.
