Testing the option starting from option A

A= [1, 5, 9, 10] Median = 7 Not correct option
B= [3, 5, 9, 10] Median = 7 Not correct option
C= [4, 5, 9, 10] Median = 7 Not correct option
D= [5, 5, 9, 10] Median = 7 Not correct option
E= [5, 7, 9, 10] Median = 8 correct option. Therefore answer is option E
