I think I missed some information while copying. Here it is...
If y ≠ 3 and x/y is a prime integer greater than 2, which of the following must be true?
Ⅰ. x = y
Ⅱ. y = 1
Ⅲ. x and y are prime integers.

I) If x were equal to y, x/y =1. Since x/y is a prime integer greater than 2, this can't be true.

II) y = 1
If y=1, x/y = x, which need not be prime, if we use a non-prime value of x such as 4. So, not true

III) x and y are prime integers
x/y is not an integer. So, not true

None!
