It has 2 equal sides of right triangle.

In a right triangle, the two shorter sides are called legs.

It is usually a side from the apex of the triangle to the base. However, in the case of a right angled triangle a leg could refer to the two sides which define the right angle.

Adjacent means next to. So you're asking what sides of a triangle are next to the right angle of a triangle. That would be the 2 shorter sides of the triangle or 'legs' of the triangle. The hypotenuse (which is the longest side of the triangle) is directly across from the right angle.

No because the sides don't comply with Pythagoras' theorem for a right angle triangle.

a scalene triangle has no equal sides and could have a right angle.

There are no numbers on that list that could be the sides of a right triangle. Oh, all right. The following is the answer:

It can be because it depends on the triangle's angles. For example, if the triangle has 2 equal sides and a right angle it could be a isosceles and a right triangle.
