Both statements talk about discharged in 1 hour, hence insuff

The question states "Of those patients discharged within one hour, one fourth were seen by only one doctor",this means that there can be more patients other than the patients who were not discharged within one hour but were seen by only one doctor.
Both the statements (1) & (2) provides the information only for the part of whole thing hence both are insufficient and thus option (E) is correct.

(1) Of the total number of patients admitted to Warehall Hospital in 1996, one ninth were discharged within one hour.
(2) Exactly 11,050 patients were discharged within one hour.

Total Patients = 17,500
Discharged within 1 day = $$\frac{1}{6}$$*17,500
Discharged within 1 hour = x => Of these patients, seen by 1 doc = $$\frac{x}{4}$$
Total patients seen by 1 doc = y
y = ?

1) one-ninth of total discharged within 1 hour.
We can find the value of x, but we don't have it's relationship to y. Insufficient.

2) 11,050 discharged within 1 hour.
We can find the value of x, but we don't have it's relationship to y. Insufficient.

1+2)
Even after combining 1&2, we have no relationship between x & y. Insufficient.

Answer should be E.

Neither statement touches on how many patients were seen by one doctor during the remainder of 1996.

Due Diligence pays dividends here. Carefully reading the statements, none gave enough insights of the whole picture. Hence E.

Answer (E), no info about the number of patients who were not discharged within one day but still seen by one doctor.

But I have question, are n't both the statements contradicting each other? statement 1 ($$1/9$$ * total patients in 1996 ($$17500$$)) is definitely not equal to 11050 from statement 2.

Or am i misunderstanding the question?

Thanks
