(1): x could be 90, 99, or any # greater than 90 divisible by 9. Therefore, we don't know the specific value for x... INSUFFICIENT.

(2): The lowest possible positive three digit number is 100. 100-4=96. However, x could be any number above 96 and below 1000-4=996. No specific value for x... INSUFFICIENT.

(1) and (2): Find a # between 96 and 996 whose digits are divisible by 9. Ex. 99, 108, etc. Therefore, we don't know the specific value for x... INSUFFICIENT.

The answer is E.
