From 1: x = 3, 7, 11, 15, 19, 23
From 2: y = 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22

any number from the X list multiplied by any number from the Y list will result in a remainder of 2 when divided by 4.

I'll go with C.

From STMT 1: X = 7, 11, 15 etc
From STMT 2: Y = 6, 10, 14 etc

each statement by itself is insufficient but combining both gives remainder as 2. So C.

Late, but C:

I. Insuff: x/4 --> R=3, it means that x = 3, 3+4 = 7, 7+4 = 11 and so on
II. Insuff: y/x --> R=2 means that y = 2, 2+4 = 6 ans do on

Together: 3*2 / 4 --> R=2, 2*6 / 4 --> R=2 --> Suff
