B is sufficient ( since 0 is not a -ve number ) only -2 is even -ve prime number.

I am not sure about answer B

B states that atleast one number in set A is even.
Consider following two possibilities for A
A={-16,-3,-,-17) this set has at least one even negative number, however it may not be the greatest. another possibility (A={-2,-3,-1} we get two answers. Hence insufficient.

Statement A states that set is a set of prime numbers multuplied by -1
so A={-2,-3,-7,....} or A={-3,-4,-5} hence insufficient.

Combine the two, we get answer -2 as the only even prime number is 2.

Hence the answer is C

Please correct if I am wrong.

C it is.

1 does not tell whether -2 included in the set or not.

Opps I realize the mistake I though the set contained only prime numbers to begin with.
I agree it is C.
