(1) x is even
(2) 2 < x < 19


x > 0, is x a prime number?

Statement 1:
Insufficient as x could be 2 (prime) or any other even number (composite).

Statement 2:
Insufficient as there are more than 1 prime and composite numbers in that range.

Combining statements 1 and 2;
x is even and greater than 2, so x is not a prime number.

Answer is C.
