Stmt 1.
X-Y=Prime number :: 5-3=2 & 7-5=2 Both equations cover stmt 1, hence stmt 1 is insufficient.

Stmt 2.
Y<X<6 :: 2<5<6 & 2<3<6 both inequalities cover stmt 2, hence stmt 2 is also insufficient.

Combining both statments
X & Y can be 2 & 5 or 3 & 5. Hence insufficient. Answer is "E".
Hope it helps.

I used to hate prime number questions. But I feel much comfortable with them since I write down 2,3,5,7 immediately after I see such a questions.

3-2=1, which is not prime, whereas 5-3=2, which is prime. Therefore, the answer must be x=5 and y=2 (5+2=7). The answer should be C, both together are sufficient to answer the question!

from (1)+(2) we have
x=5, y=3
x=5, y=2
"1" is not a prime, so x=3, y=2 doesn't fit.
2 possible options. Looks like (E)
