Clearly statement 1 and 2 are insufficient on its own .
In order to answer this DS question , we should know what percentage of birds have avian flu . There is no information about this statistics .
So, the answer is E .

Since the actual no. of birds having flue is no known, it is insufficient to answer the question even after combining two statements.

Initially I thought C then while posting that query found out how its E ,below is the working , hope it helps.

how likely means probability !


Probability = Positive cases / Total cases

1) we have no idea of other positive cases , we know that 80% of avian flu are positive only , NS.
2) Here we have know idea of avian flu, positive cases , NS

1+2 covers all the cases , avian flu + non avian flu cases

let there be 100 + 100 cases , probability =85/200 =17/40
let there be 100 + 200 cases , probability=90/300= 3/10

Answer E.
