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.

That question was not in your original post. And doesn't quite make sense. A rhombus is a parallelogram with four equal sides. A square is a special case of a rhombus and all four of its vertices do lie on a circle. If you specify a NON=square parallogram (angle are not right angles) then its center will be at the intersection of the two diagonals. But those two diagonals are of different lengths. There exist two circles with center at the center of the rhombus passing through either of the two sets of diagonally opposite vertices.
