I don't understand where is this E?

Please enlighten me.

Since it says "positive y coordinates are above the x- axis" and then says "Point E could be located in Quadrant I, Quadrant II, or on the x-axis", I would say that "point E" is a point (given somewhere else, prior to this picture) that has non-negative y coordinate. I recommend you look through the previous three or four paragraphs to see if E isn't given there.

E isn't there I have no clue now what to do in this problem.

I don't see a problem question. All the picture seems to be saying is that E (otherwise undefined) has a positive y coordinate. Therefore it is in either Q I or Q II or on the axis (x=0) between them.
