1) One of the six countries sent 41 representatives to the congress.
2) Country A sent fewer than 12 representatives to the congress.

IMO E,

1. Is not suff, lets say for. e.g A sent 9 rep then the other 4 countries would have sent 8,7,6,4 which totals to 75 or and we can also assume that country A sent 10 then also we can have various options for other 4 countries.

2. Similarly this is also not suff.

Even if we combine then also its not suff.

I get E.

1) Max is 41. So A < 41.
Remaining is 75-41 = 34

If A sends 10, the max total from remaining companies can be 10+9+8+7+6 = 40. This is okay because total of max remaining should be greater than 34. ( In order to deduct 6 we can adjust the numbers for remaining companies )

If A sends 9, the max total for remaining will be 9+8+7+6+5=35. This is also okay because 35>34.

So we don't know for sure whether A has sent >=10.

2) A sends less than 12.
A can send 11,10,9,8,..5 as we don't know the greatest number of employees that a company has sent.

Combining,
A can send 11,10 or 9. So E.

Note that if A sends 8, then max total for remaining will be 8+7+6+5+4 = 30 < 34. So A > 8. However this does not answer our question.
