Stem1:

Stem2:

Combined:
Combined, we get the number of elements in T but not the values of the element. Hence cannot be solved

I agree with Jade, E

The numbers 1-19 make the inequality true. However, it is unclear which numbers 20-25, if any, are contained in Set T making it not able to be solved.
