x > 0, x = ?

Statement 1:
x is a prime number. This statement is insufficient because there are infinite prime numbers.

Statement 2:
x is a multiple of 2. This statement is insufficient because there are infinite multiples of 2.

Combining statements 1 and 2:
x is a prime number and multiple of 2. So, x is 2.

St 1 - x is a prime number but which prime number, is not clear hence insufficient.
St 2 - the remainder is 0, when divided by 2, whicj are infinite number.
St1 + st2 - x is 2, as it is a prime number and divisible by 2. Hence answer C
