D it is


For (1), the series can be 2+3 = 5 also.

So, 1 is not sufficient. I will go with (b)

1 is not a prime number.

Question does not state that the first digit is a prime no. so (2) still holds good.

From the question itself, there are many possible answers such as
1 2 3 5 7 11
2 3 5 7 11 13
3 5 7 11 13 17
5 7 11 13 17 19

When we take (1) into consideration, only the 1st series is correct " 1 2 3 5 7"

When we consider (2), we get the same series of " 1 2 3 5 7"

So..D is absolutely correct

Congratulation!
