(1) (-1,-2), (2, -2), this side is parallel to x axe, insuff to find the third vertex
(2) (-1,-2), (2, 3)

The third vertex could be either (2, -2) or (-1,3) (insuff)

(1) & (2), 3 vertices: (-1,-2), (2, -2),(2, 3) <= suff

So the answer is C

is the QA B ?

One of the vertices is (-1,-2) A is not sufficient since joining it makes only one side.
B shows (2,3) as one of the vertices, it has to be the diagonal opposite one, since otherwise the side would not be parallel to axes ( yes they mean both the axes) .
Hence , its sufficient to find out the other two sides and their lengths.
