It is C. E=-2/F=0 (and it can not be the other way around taking into account that E<0).

-2/F=0 has no GMAT sense, F= +/-infitity

[E=0 and F=inf] is a wrong answer

I mean E=2 and F=0 as the only solution taking into account 1 and 2 conditions. Therefore, the answer is C.

Stolyar, what is the right answer?

From (A):

You get the possibilities (E,F): (3,2), (2,3), (0,-1), (-1,0)

not suff

From (B):anything in the world
not suff

But taken together, if E is negative, then the pair must be (-1,0)

C

a great work! you all guys had to see that 2 is a prime, and since E and F are integers there are not so many combinations: 1 and 2 plus negatives.
C is correct.
