When 33 is divided by any number greater than 33, the remainder will be 33. Statement 1 tells us that y is greater than 90, so we know that the remainder must be 33. Any numerator divided by a larger denominator will yield a remainder equal to the numerator.

I hope this helps!!!

1) st1 is insufficient because if 33 is divided by 93,96 and 99 remainder will be 11. In all other cases it will be 33
2) st 2 is insufficient because only information given is y is a prime no

st1 +st2 means x is 97 in this case remainder will be 33 so Ans should be C

Hello archana2511,

The answer to this question is A and not C. Refer to explanation here : what-is-the-remainder-when-33-is-divided-by-the-integer-y-166420.html#p1320512

if y>33 than : 33=0*q+33 then the remainder is surely 33

if y is a prime number let us consider y=2 then, 33=16*2+1 => remainder =1
if y=3 then 33=3*11+0 then the remainder is 0 ....so we have two different options => not sufficient

Answer is A
