Do you realise that most of your "questions" can be answered by using google?

But MY English is bad. And the link you gave me don't answer my other question. I ask my question: Why the rhombus his vertix can't be on a circle, and you not give me a answer...

Okay, do you know what a "chord" is? Do you know what a "chord angle" is? A "chord" in a circle is a line segment that that has its endpoints on the circle. Drawing lines from the center of a circle to the end points of the chord defines two angles, one less than or equal to 180 degrees the other larger. The "chord angle" is the smaller of those angles. The real question is whether a diameter of a circle counts as a chord. Both Wikipedi (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chord_(geometry)) and Mathisfun.com (https://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/chord.html) say it is. And a diameter divides a circle into two equal parts, each with "chord angle" 360/2= 180 degrees. Quote:
