Stmt 1.
$$X-Y=Prime number$$ :: $$5-3=2$$ & $$7-5=2$$ Both equations cover stmt 1, hence stmt 1 is insufficient.

Stmt 2.
$$Y<X<6$$ :: $$2<5<6$$ & $$2<3<6$$ both inequalities cover stmt 2, hence stmt 2 is also insufficient.

Combining both statments
$$X & Y$$ can be $$2 & 5$$ or $$3 & 5$$. Hence insufficient. Answer is "E".
Hope it helps.

I used to hate prime number questions. But I feel much comfortable with them since I write down 2,3,5,7 immediately after I see such a questions.

3-2=1, which is not prime, whereas 5-3=2, which is prime. Therefore, the answer must be x=5 and y=2 (5+2=7). The answer should be C, both together are sufficient to answer the question!

from (1)+(2) we have
x=5, y=3
x=5, y=2
"1" is not a prime, so x=3, y=2 doesn't fit.
2 possible options. Looks like (E)

I think that the quickest way to solve subject issue is using substitution approach
(1) X-Y=prime
5-3=2
5-2=3
Not Suff
(2) X<Y<6
agin not Suff
As long as (1) & (2) have the same conditions then (1) +(2) is not Suff as well
