Correct Answer - Option 2 : B and C are correct 

Formula Used:

Remainder Theorem

Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder           

Calculation:

Prime numbers between 19 and 41 are 23, 29, 31, 37

23 = 7 × 3 + 2

29 = 7 × 4 + 1

31 = 7 × 4 + 3

37 = 7 × 5 + 2

23 and 37 are required numbers.

B and C are correct
