(1) tells you x is between 6.25 and 7.5

(2) tells you x is x is between 5 and 7.5

We are not given that x is an integer, so not sufficient.

I for a moment worked it to be A, but since it is not mentioned that X is an integer, the answer should be E.
As x could vary between 6.25 and 7.5 as per statement A
And x could be between 5 and 7.5 as per statement B
combining both still x could be 6.25 and 7.5 so the answer is E.
