If x is a prime number, what is the value of x?
1) x<15
2) (x-2) is a multiple of 5

Answer: C

hello, gmatready! Welcome to TestMagic.com!

1) x<15: too many numbers; must reduce!
2) 7, 17, 37, 47, etc. are all primes and will result in a multiple of 5 if 2 is subtracted:

7-2=5
17-2=15
etc.

Therefore, both are necessary!

BTW, I will move your question to our DS section a little later, okay?
