Could be 32 or 23

(2) P is even
Could be 22 or 21

If P is Even and GCD is 1 then Q can't be a multiple of 2 (i.e. can't be even)

1) P could be 3 and Q could be 4 (GCD is 1) making PQ even or
P could be 3 and Q coulc be 5 (GCD is still 1) making PQ odd

Not Suff

2) P is even. So if Q is odd, PQ is Odd and if Q is even PQ is even.
Not suff

from 1 and 2
If P is even and if GCD of P and Q is 1 then Q needs to be odd, making PQ odd all the time

Statement 1:
The two digits cannot be both even. INSUFF

Statement 2:
P is even, PQ can be 23 or 24 INSUFF

Together,
Since P is even, Q cannot be even. SUFF
