We'll solve this question by using the underlying logic of averages (without calculating).
This is a Logical approach.

(1) This gives information on only one test. What about the others?
Insufficient.

(2) This gives an equation with only variables in it - infinite solutions!
Insufficient.

Combined - We substitute 46 into our equation from (2) but this still gives an equation with 3 variables in it.
Infinite solutions --> Insufficient!

(E) is our answer.

(1) Jim got a 46 on one of the tests. Ok so one of the four tests he had a score of 46, but we don't know the other scores; insufficient.

(2) Jim's highest grade was twice the average (arithmetic mean) of his three lowest grades. So, $$Highest=2*\frac{Lowest}{3}$$, nothing about the score values; insufficient.

(1)+(2).All we know is that the highest is twice the average of the three lowest scores and 46 could be the highest or one of the lowest; insufficient.

(E) is the answer.
