Figure or Drawing?

Four different quadrilaterals are constructed on the page. Some of the points are dependent on objects, only by moving points around can you tell what shape has been constructed. The point is that you can draw what looks like a rhombus or parallelogram, but to be mathematically correct they should be constructed which means points will become dependent on other objects. Hence the difference between a figure or a drawing (diagram) in an exam.
