Only a square and a rectangle can be inscribed in a circle and their diagonals must be equal to the diameter of the circle.

From (1) we have many side combinations that add-up to 10. For example: 5 and 5 (area 25) and 3 and 7 (area 21). Insufficient.
From (2) we can calculate the radius (and thus the diagonals). But we don't have info that could help us reveal if it's a square or a rectangle. If it was a square we could get the area. If it isn't, we couldn't.

Together we can use pythagoras and get the area. diagonal= 5, side=x, side=10-x
