  2. None of them do

    As a matter of fact, the last three don't even form triangles.
    the second forms a straight line, notice 20+26 = 46
    and the last two fail the basic property that in order to even have a triangle, the sum of any two must be greater than the third side.

    for the first one: 15^2 + 10^2 ≠ 25^2
