E?

In all three cases - Stat(I), Stat(II), Both - the count is different when x=17 than when x=18.

let me clarify it, combine (1) with (2)

the scope will be 17<=x<19

so, x might be 17 or 18

Therefore, the number of prime integers less than x will be different,

2,3,5,7,11,13,17 or 2,3,5,7,11,13

is it right?

thank you

The question seeks to find prime number lesser than X.
It is therefore first to determine X.

I worked with the similar logic as yours and got E as the answer.
Because X can't be uniquely determined (as you showed, the number of primes vary with the 17 and 18). The answer is therefore E.
