A.
in the question statement we are given about even numbers and odd prime numbers. The only thing missing is number of odd composite numbers.
So statement one will be sufficient for that.

Given: No. of even integers in the set = 5, no. of odd primes = 4

(1) Set contains 2 odd composite numbers, so total odd numbers = total odd comp + total odd prime = 2 + 4 = 6
Total even numbers = 5
So, total numbers = 5 + 6 = 11, Hence Sufficient.

(2) Set has 6 composite numbers. Now here we can have two cases:
2 is a prime number and even. So out of 5 even integers, we can have the following cases:
Case 1: All 5 even integers are composite, i.e. 2 is not a part of the set. Then, remaining 6-5 = 1 composite integer is odd.
So, total odd = 1 composite + 4 prime = 5
total even = 5
Total numbers = 5 + 5 = 10

Case 2: 4 even integers are composite and the other even integer is 2 which is prime.
Then, remaining 6 - 4 = 2 composite numbers are odd.
So, total odd = 2 composite + 4 prime = 6
total even = 5

Total numbers = 5 + 6 = 11

hence statement (2) is Insufficient.

Hence Option A!
