Answer is A alone is sufficient
Drop a median ( PS) from P to X axis . since it is an equilateral triangle the median will be at 90 degrees on X axis and will be an angle bisector at P . Now this triangle PSR or PSQ are 30-60-90 triangles since we know PS - it is 2root3 we can find out QS and hence the base of the triangle . so we can find the area out

Coming to option B . well the equilaterla triange can have any base , it can be 8 , or 6 or 4 , or 7 and we have no clue about the height so it is not sufficient

A seems to be the answer

1) The coordinates of point P (6, 2 √3) .

as we know the height of the equilateral triangle: 2 √3, we can calculate the hypotenuse (PR), which enable to calculate the area of the equilateral triangle (4/√3 x (PR)^2). Sufficient

2)The coordinates of point Q are (8, 0)

Not able to calculate any of its length of the triangle. Not sufficient.

IMO: A is the answer
