1 . The difference between any 2 different elements of the set S is 2.

2. The range of Set S is 2.

C. if both are combined we can say that there are 2 elements in the set.

Im leaning to C as well.

Statement 1 tells us difference btwn each value in set, but no clue as to how many elements

Statement 2 says range is 2. So we can have a set like (0,1,2) or (1,3), etc ... no definitive answer to how many elements in the set

Combining the two statements, we can conclude that there are only 2 elements in the set

I think it's A.

(1) If the difference between any 2 elements is 2, then we can conclude that there are only 2 elements in set S.
We have S = {2,4} or {5,7}, but cannot have {0,2,4} because 0 and 4 would give diff of 4.
SUFFICIENT.

(2) We can have {0,1,2] or {0,2}

You're back on your A game this morning

Good catch. I'll go with A as well for this very reason.
