An interesting question. Seems too difficult and too easy at the same time. My answer is E. I believe there are many possible cases.

1. Both triangles are right triangles.
Knowing that the two triangles are right angled, does not
confirm if the triangles are congruent.
3-4-5 and 6-8-10 are both right angled but not congruent(Insufficient)

2. Both triangles have the same perimeter.
3-4-5 and 4-4-4 have same perimeter but aren't congruent(Insufficient)

On combining both the statements,
Lets take case of Pythagorean triplets
Triangle 1 with sides 21,28 and 35
Triangle 2 with sides 12,35 and 37
Both are right angled triangles of same perimeter but not congruent.(Option E)
