It seems 'A' is the correct one.

taking (1),

n + 4 is a prime number
==> n must be an odd number (there is no even number, except 2, is also the prime number)

taking (2)
n + 3 is not a prime number ==> n can be even number (ex. 16) or an odd number (ex. 14)

So (1) alone is suffiicient to answer the question, while (2) alone is not

n>0

1)
n+4=prime
All prime but 2 are odd and n+4 can't be 2.
odd+even=odd
Thus, n=odd
Sufficient.

2)
n+3 Not prime
n=6; n+3=9. Not prime. n=even
n=7; n+3=10. Not prime. n=odd
Not Sufficient.

Ans: "A"
