You probably misunderstood and worked for only primes.
The question stem states integers.

from statement 1 : Factors of 30 that are between 2 and 8 are: 3, 5 and 6. Not Sufficient

from statement 2: Factors of 12 that are between 2 and 8 are: 3 and 6. Not Sufficient

Both taken together: k can be either 3 or 6. Not Sufficient.

You missed 6.
Hope that helps.
