A

1) 3rd side would be 2 and 2 + 2 not greater than 5
2) 3rd side is 8 and 2+5 not greater than 8
3) 3rd side is 12 and 2+5 not greater than 12

The length of any side of a triangle must be larger than the positive difference of the other two sides, but smaller than the sum of the other two sides.

Therefore:
(5-2) < {third side} < (5+2).

3 < {third side} < 7.

Perimeter = {third side} + 2 + 5 = {third side} + 7.

10 < {perimeter} < 14.
