I think E.
We need distances between A B or C D to calculate distance between BC.

1) Gives AB + BC = 7 , Insufficient
2) Gives BC + CD = 9, Insufficient

If we consider both (1) and (2)
Still BC cannot be determined

Answer E

1/ AB + BC = 7 => cannot decide how much is BC => insuff => excl A and D

2/ BC + CD = 9 => cannot decide how much is BC => insuff => excl B

1 and 2 together => Cannot decide how much is BC => E

Please kudo if it helps. Thanks.
