### Difficulty Level

Medium### Solution

Option C is the correct answer.

### Option Analysis

Statement I is insufficient: tells us the lengths of three sides but this theory still could leave us with a fourth side that is longer/shorter than the rest, so insufficient.

Statement II is insufficient: Tells us that our quadrilateral is either a rectangle or a square, insufficient.

Together I and II, tell us that our quadrilateral is a square, because Statement II restricts the possible shapes that statement II can take, and combining the two tells us how long the fourth side in Statement I is, so sufficient.
