Answer should be C

If N and S contain any even numbers ?

1. There are no prime numbers in S.

2. There are no multiples of 4 in S.

From Stmt 2 -> S should be {1,2,3}

From Stmt 1-> S will be {1} (take out the primes 2,3)

Thus both the statements are required

Seems the question is incomplet. "If N and S contain any even numbers?" doesnot make any sense.

pls post the complete and correct question.

I agree.

S1: I was thinkin ok S could be 0 or 1. If it has no prime numbers (I was thinking prime factors).

S2: This doesnt tell us anything

Together still nothing about N. I find the statements a bit odd for S as well when combining them. So Ima vote for none of the above

Updated: make sense now and it should be E.

1: S could be 1, 4, 6 or 9 etc.

2: S could be 2, 6 or any odd.

1&2: S could be 6 or any non-prime odd.

Assuming S only contains intergers.

Vote E. Statement 1: Tells us the set cannot contain 1,2,3,5,7,11,13,17...Tells us nothing about containing a even, other than 2. The set could contain 6. Statement 2: Tells us the set cannot have multiples of 4. So 4,8,12,etc.. But the set could contain 6 or 10. Together we learn nothing more.

No prime numbers in S.. That means.. S has numbers like 3,4,5,6,7...

No multiples of 4.. so S has numbers like.. 6,10...

Now, even if you combine both, you cant really get to any conclusion.. ! Hence E

3, 5, and 7 are primes.
