C is the answer. Less than 30 seconds.

I believe 1 is not a prime number.

A) not sufficient because we dont know whether the set starts with -2, -3 or anythinf greater than -2 or -3

B) not sufficient because the set could contain -1 or -2

If you combine then the set should contain -2 because
2 is the only prime number that is even.

No matter what the set contains -2 will be the greatest number.
