If 49 < x < 54 what is the value of x?
So we have that the possible values are all between 49 and 54, not necessarily integers, so infinite possibilities and we need to get the only one.
(1) x is not a prime number.
With (1), we just get that out of all those values (49.1; 50;...), the integer prime 51 would not be the one. Not sufficient.
(2) x is odd.
With this we get more information that seems, being odd means that our value can be only integer, so we reduced from infinite possibilities to just 2, 51 & 53.
Regardless of that, again, Not sufficient.
Finally, combining (1) & (2), we get that 53 would be the only possible value, so the answer would be C.
