1. A quadrilateral is a 4 sided figure. It can be square, a trapezoid, rectangle, parallelogram, etc. So, knowing the perimeter is not enough to determine the Area. Statement 1 is therefore insufficient.

2. Knowing that the quadrilateral ABCD is a square alone is not sufficient. We need to know the length of the sides of the square otherwise we can have endless possibilities resulting in many Areas of the quadrilateral.

Combining 1 and 2 is however sufficient since we can determine the length of each side of the square from the perimeter which was given as 16.
Perimeter of a square = l+l+l+l = 4l
So 4l=36 meaning l =4.
Area of ABCD = 4*4 =16. Therefore statement and 1 and 2 taken together are sufficient. Answer is therefore C.
