Triangles:

The very, very important fact to know here is that you DO NOT NEED to know the sides of a triangle to know the angles. ALL triangles on a plane (perfectly flat surface) have angles that add up to a total of 180 degrees, always.

Since the angles are in the ratio of 2:3:4, let the angles be 2x, 3x, and 4x

So this gives you the equation 2x + 3x + 4x = 180 degrees.

Solve for x, substitute back to get each angle, and check.

Rhombus:

Yes, the diagonals do form a vertical angle but that meand the ANGLES are equal, which does NOT tell you about the length of the sides.

I get the feeling here that you have not had lengths versus angle measure explained to you very clearly. This takes illustrations and you should go to a library or bookstore, find a basic math book or ...
