Both the statements are insufficient because it is not mentioned that the number is an integer or a non integer

Statement 1 is not sufficient as x can be any number greater than 9
Statement 2 is not sufficient as x can be any number less than 11
Statement 1 and 2 together are not sufficient as x can be any number greater than 9 and lesser than 11, which could be 10 or 9.6 or 9.32 etc
Hence
IMO E

(1) x > 9

#1
range of x is not defined
insufficient
#2
x<11
again insufficient
from 1 & 2
x can be 10 integer or any fraction value
IMO E

Both options are INSUFFICIENT alone.

Taking both (1) + (2), we get value of x, 9<x<11. Since it is not known whether x is integer or not, we can say, value of x can be from 9.1 <----> 10.9

Thus correct option is E

X Could be anything between 9 and 11 as question didn't asked specifically X is integer or not.
X can take any value between 9 and 11 such as 9.1, 9.2 ..... 10.9.
E is the right answer.
