1) Sufficient. since each paid more than country X, 56/5= 11.2 < 12 ,8 which is higher than X. so X is not the 6th member highest-contributing countries.

2) not Sufficient.

I take my above answer back....

1- Is not Sufficient, since it doesnt metioned the % of each country contribution.

So i pick E...

I get C. Together, A and B seem sufficient to prove X was not in the top 6.

A cannot be true without the assumpution that contribution of X was (67.5-56) = 11.5 %, but there is nothing here to indicate that.

B: By itself again does not say enough since the other countries' contributions may have totalled (67.5-4.8)% while the other 153 countries are all less than 4.8%
