E

(1) This tells you that of A, B and C, they must be in the order A, C, B. But this doesn't tell us the median of ABCDE - we don't know anything about D & E
(2) This tells us that of D and E, the order must be E, D. But this doesn't tell us the median of ABCDE - we don't know anything about A,B & C

Together, we still don't know.

We could have the following order
ACBED
or
EDACB
or
EADCB
or lots of others

Insufficient
Answer E
