1) Team A won 11 of the last 12 games it played.
2) Team A won 14 f the first 48 games it played.

Team A won 30% of first 50 games. This means 15 out of 50 games.
"Also A won all remaining games it played"

Statement 1: A won 11 of last 12 games it played. But team had won All games over 50. It is possible that team A played on 55 matches, and it had won 11 of last 12 matches (from 43 to 55), It is also possible that team A played 61 matches and lost first and won rest 11 out of 11 matches between 50-61.
Not sufficient
Statement 2: A won 14 of first 48 games played. Only thing we can deduce is, it won 1 more in next 2 (from question stem). Not sufficient.

together, also example given in statement 1 holds good. Not sufficient.

Ans E it is.
