I answered it wrong but suddenly realized my mistake.

The number is {x,10,13,15,17} (not in an order), and we must answer what is X?

#Statement 1
- Median 15 makes the set become like this : {10,13,15,17,x} or {10,13,15,x,17}.
- INSUFFICIENT.

#Statement 2
- The range of them is 7 - clearly INSUFFICIENT.

#Statement 1 & 2
- We have 2 option : {10,13,15,17,x} or {10,13,15,x,17}.
- Combine with statement 2, X can be 17 (from the first set) or 15/16/17 (from the second set).

=>

1) & 2) x = 16, x = 17
We have two solutions. The answer is not unique.
This is not sufficient.

Ans: E
