When one side has been given,
In an equilateral triangle where angles are equal, sides are also equal.
Hence, perimeter = 3*5 = 15

Though the right angled triangle seems like we can get the perimeter,
since the hypotenuse is 5, it could be a Pythagorean triplet(3,4,5) where the perimeter will be 12.
However, the sides of the triangle can also be \(\sqrt{5}\) and \([fraction]20[/fraction]\)
The perimeter of that triangle is \(5 + 3\sqrt{5}\). We cannot get an unique perimeter.

Hence, Option B(II only) is the answer option
