    It's not e. Otherwise the number would be divisible by 2 -> not prime It can't be A. The answer is C because P must be even (divided by 4) while prime numbers must be odd. C is the only answer that divides by an odd term, which is necessary to arrive at a prime number. For example, 12/4 = 3 3 is greater than one and prime. The question indicates only one answer is correct. Thus, C.
