1.
f is odd
the product of f x g can be odd or even
therefore fg+2 can be odd or even
even numbers are never prime
fail
2.
g is even
the product of f x g must be even
an even number plus an even number is an even number
fg+2 is always even
pass

I would say E


if g=0..then fg=0..then fg+2=2...which is a prime..

if g=2 then fg+2 wont be a prime..
