How the answer could be E? Since S is in II Quadrant so x coordinate must be negative. I think it should be A.

Yes, the correct answer is A, not E.

Vertex S is in Quadrant II, where x is negative and y is positive.

S coordinates: (k, 3)
$$k$$ is the x-coordinate.
$$k$$ (x-coordinate) must be negative.

Only one choice meets that condition: Answer A.
