(1) INSUFFI => i know the most expensive but no clue about least
(2)just the average does not give clue,here we get sum of 100 book prices =5000 => no clue about range ,highest and lowest can be any numbers !!!INSUFFI

(1) and (2)
Most expensive=\$100
sum=5000
least can be any value hence INSUFFI

IMO E

So the ans is E
