Statement 1:
Take X = 17, 29, 41, 53, & 65
In all cases remainder by 12 is 5, if you check remainder with 8 it is varying, so this statement alone cannot answer the question.

Statement 2:
Take X = 29, 47, 65, 83, 101
In this case also remainder by 18 is 11 however remainder by 8 is varying, so this statement alone cannont answer the question.

Combining both option
Take X = 65, 101
Both numbers satisfy statement 1 and 2 however on divided by 8 leaves diffirent remainder.

So question cannot be answered by these statement, Answer E.
