Prime numbers less than 10 = 2, 3, 5, 7. x and y can take any oth the values

On checking the options
A. xy is even
xy can be even or odd both
B. xy is odd
xy can be even or odd both
C. xy < 0
Product of two prime numbers can never be < 0
Prime numbers are always positive
D. xy < 36
The maximum value of multiplicaiton can be 5*7 = 35.
Hence this is true always
E. xy > 6
x = 2, y = 3
In this case, xy = 6. FLASE

Correct Option: D
