==> In the original condition, since there are 9 variables, E is likely to be the answer.
Through 1) & 2), in order of size, the first 5 numbers are smaller than 10 or the same. Also, the last 5 numbers are bigger than 10 or the same. Hence, the fifth number should be always 10. Then, the fifth number becomes median and median=10, which is unique and sufficient. Hence, the answer is C.

Ans C.

we have 9 number in the set ..so 5th will be the median...

a. so we can tell anything about 5th number . it can be any value less or equal to 10.
b. same as a , we cant tell any thing about the 5 th number..

by combining we can deduce that 5 th number have to be 10 to satisfy the both condition ..
So median will be 10 ...
