None of these can be prime.

x = 11!. So x is a multiple of all numbers between 1 and 11 included.

x + 2 = multiple of 2 + multiple of 2 = multiple of 2
x + 3 = multiple of 3 + multiple of 3 = multiple of 3
x + 5 = multiple of 5 + multiple of 5 = multiple of 5
x + 7 = multiple of 7 + multiple of 7 = multiple of 7
