I. The area of a square region with side AB --> side=AB=5 --> the area of a square is 5^2=25, so only one possible value;

II. The circumference of a circle passing through points A and B --> circle is not defined by only two points, hence the circumference of a circle passing through points A and B can take infinitely many values. For example consider when AB=diameter and when points A and B are not the endpoints of the diameter;

III. The area of a rectangular region with diagonal AB --> consider the case when AB is the diagonal of a square (the area is 25/2) and the case when AB is the diagonal of a rectangle with the sides equal to 3 and 4 (the area 12).
