Wow. Well, A isn't enough, obviously - no way to tell the length/heighth, etc. So unless there's some cool rule having to do with midpoints of sides of triangles that I'm missing (which is entirely possible) I'd say E. And if not E, then B! :P

I think it is B

From 1 – Insufficient
No length is given..

From 2 – Sufficient
(Height of Point B) / AB = (Height of Point C) / AC
=> 5 / AB = (Height of Point C) / 2 * AB
=> 5 = (Height of Point C) / 2
=> Height of Point C = 10
