Answer is C

1) Arc AB = 120, so angle AEB = 60
Thus triangle AEB is an equilateral triangle, but we do not know the measure of any side - Not sufficient
2) Segment AB = 2 - Not sufficient

Together sufficient to calculate the perimeter of triangle AEB

Statement 1: Arc AB = 120.
Theorem: The angle subtended by the arc to any point on the circumference of the circle of which it is a part. This angle is always half the central angle. Thus angle AEB = 60. You can refer to this link for more information: http://www.mathopenref.com/arc.html
Furthermore, the angle EFB = 90. Therefore triangle AEB is an equilateral triangle. Hope that helps.
