Observe that the figure A is a quadrilateral with no sides parallel.
The figure B is a quadrilateral with a pair of opposite sides parallel. That is figure B is a trapezium.
The figure A and figure B are not congruent, since A is a quadrilateral and B a trapezium.
And thus, Figure A cannot be transformed to figure B by using only rotations, reflections or translations.
The correct option is C.
It cannot be defined because Figure A and Figure B are congruent.
