A

you have AB = 2, AC = 1, so for it to be a 30-60-90 triangle, BC has to be = sqrt(3) = ~1.7

But from the statement, BC is only 2/3 of AB, so it is not a 30-60-90 triangle, and BC is only ~1.3, so one of the angle has to be bigger than 90

statement 2 does not tell you about the ratio or relationship between the 3 sides. You can have a equilateral, or types of isoceles triangles.
