Great Official Question
Here we need to find whether the concern integer n is prime or not
Statement 1
[24,28]=n
n=> 24=> divisible by 2
n=> 25=> divisible by 5
n=26 => divisible by 2
n=27 => divisible by 3
n=28 => divisible by 2
hence n is never prime
Hence Sufficient

Statement 2
n=5
n=25
taking the above two test cases we can discard the statement.
P.S=> This statement is just saying that 2 and 3 are not prime factors of n.

Hence A

None of the integers in statement 1) are prime

24 is divisible by 2
25 is divisible by 5
26 is divisible by 2
27 is divisible by 3
28 is divisible by 2

We get a sufficient answer that n is not prime.

Statement 2)

Well 5 is a prime and not divisible by neither 2 nor 3

25 is not a prime and is not divisible by neither 2 nor 3.

Insufficient.
