(1) a + b = c
(2) a! + b! = c


Here there is no relation is given among a,b,c

so from 1:
a+b=c
2+1=3 yes or 2+4=6 no
not sufficient

from 2:
a!+b!=c
1!+2!=3 yes
or 2!+3!= 8 no

combining we get 1+2=3 and 1!+2!=3 or 2+2=4 , not sufficient IMO E

IMO E

If a, b, and c are positive integers, is c a prime number?

(1) a + b = c
(2) a! + b! = c

stmt1
1+1= 2 Yes
1+2=3 Yes
2+2=4 No
2+4 = 8 No

Stmt 2
a!+b!=c
1!+1!=2 Prime yes
1!+2!=3 Prime yes
2!+2!=4 Not PRime No

Combined
a+b =c
1+2=3 Yes
1!+2!=3 Yes

2+2=4 No
2!+2!=4 No

hence NS

Just wanted to add.. question stem does not say that a and b are distinct.. they can be same.

a+b=c
1+1=2 yes
2+4=6 no

a!+b!=c
1!+1!=2 yes
2!+2!=4 no

Combined..
Test using a=b=1 and a=b=2
E
