ST. 1

I never know how to go about primes. I have noticed that the cubes tend to be 64 and 27

I check these numbers and see that they both work
insufficient.

Statement 2
every prime will have an average of an integer since it is odd.

average will be the mean in this case. if the number is 13 the average will be the 7th integer, 17 the 8th integer and so on.

insufficient.


together. I pointed out that 13 and and 31 both work here, and their averages are 7 and 16 respectively, also insuff.

Therefore E

A is not sufficient

2x+2 = 6
x=3 gives 8 which is cube of 3
x=31 gives 64 which is cube of 4

B is also not sufficient as it can mean that x is any odd number.

E
