I'd say B
The question ask whether K is prime number or not

1) is not sufficient. k>24 says nothing. i.e. if k=31 then answer is "no" but if k=25 then answer is "yes"

2) integers from 13!+2 to 13!+13, inclusive, are all non-prime numbers.
To illustrate
13!+2 = 1*2*3*...*13 +2 ->> this is divisible by 2
13!+3 = 1*2*3*...*13 +3 ->> this is divisible by 3
13!+13 = 1*2*2*...*13 +13 ->> this is divisible by 13
Thus, 2) only is sufficient

How did you determine that K is prime?

Definition of prime number is that, there are 2 factors which are 1 and that number itself.
In this question, if k has any factors that are between 1 and k, then k is not prime number. If not, then only factors shall be 1 and k.
