Good luck, man!

I get E here. Here is my reasoning:

Because there are a bunch of possible combinations of x+y to get a number closest to int. 4, A is out => BCE

Because there are a bunch of possible combinations of x-y to get a number closest to int. 1, B is out => CE

If x = 2.7 and y = 1.4, x+y ~ 4; x-y ~ 1 => x is closest to int. 3
If x = 2.3 and y = 1.5, x+y ~ 4; x-y ~ 1 => x is closest to int. 2

From the above, we get 2 different integers closest to x => E
