In a certain year the United Nations’ total expenditures were $1.6 billion. Of this amount, 67.8 percent was paid by the 6 highest-contributing countries, and the balance was paid by the remaining 153 countries. Was country X among the 6 highest-contributing countries? (1) 56 percent of the total expenditures was paid by the 4 highest-contributing countries, each of which paid more than Country X. (2) Country X paid 4.8 percent of the total expenditures.

(1) 56 percent of the total expenditures was paid by the 4 highest-contributing countries, each of which paid more than Country X.
(2) Country X paid 4.8 percent of the total expenditures.

Looks like E.

ST1, country X can be out of those 6 countries. NOT SUFF.
ST2, NOT SUFF, 4.8 % of total expenditure doesn't mean that X can be among 6 countires.

Together ST1 and ST2 look INSUFF.
