(A) {8, 9, 10, 11, 12}
The 5 numbers are in a AP, hence Median=Mean. This is out.

(B) {8, 9, 10, 11, 13}
The Median here is 10 and the Mean is slightly more than 10. This is out.

(C) {8, 10, 10, 10, 12}
Median here is 10 and the Man is also 10. This is out.

(D) {10, 10, 10, 10, 10}
Here Mean = Median. This is out.

(E) {7, 9, 10, 11, 12}
Here Median is 10 and Mean is slightly less than 10. This is the correct option.
