A

1. n + 4 >4 and n + 4 is a prime number -> n+4 is odd --> n odd: sufficient

2. n+3 > 3 and n + 3 is NOT a prime, n+ 3 = 4 --> n odd; n+3 =5 --> n even: not sufficient

hi sondenso u are right but the correct solution here is
Even + Even=Even
Even + Odd=Odd
So if we have n+4 is prime then n should be odd because 4 is even.
n+3 can be odd or even depending on the value of n
so ans is A
