If X is a prime number, what is the value of X?

(1) X < 15

(2) (X-2) is a multiple of 5.

I chose C. Seems like you can narrow X down to equal 7.

(1) alone is insufficient, obviously. So scratch out A and D

(2) alone is insufficient because you can have 17 and 7 (17-2 = 15 and 7-2=5). So scratch out B also

Together it ould appear to be sufficient but remember that 0 is also a a multiple of 5. So you can have X=2 or X=7 both fulfilling the 2 conditions. Scratch out C

Based on Statement 1 & 2: X can be 2 or 7, so E
'0' is not a prime number. A prime number has to have 2 factors 1 and itself.
