1) Using Statement (1), We cannot find the age of Sachin in 1997.NOT SUFFICIENT

2) Using Statement (2), We cannot find the age of Sachin in 1997 ;NOT SUFFICIENT

taking 1 and 2 together Since range of prime numbers is not given, we cannot calculate the age of Sachin even using both the statement together ;NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement (1) and Statement(2) together is not sufficient.

Hence option A is correct.

2) Using Statement (2), We cannot find the age of Sachin in 1997 ;NOT SUFFICIENT

taking 1 and 2 together Since range of prime numbers is not given, we cannot calculate the age of Sachin even using both the statement together ;NOT SUFFICIENT
