Just make a rough sketch
obviously GF is a horizontal line (same y values)
and H is to the left of the vertical through G.
So angle G is obtuse and we have an obtuse  angled triangle.
Since there appears to be only one choice in the answers, I did not bother to check if GF = GH to make it also isosceles. That would be easy to check.
