(1) What is wrong with this set of answers?

(2) If you are required to justify your answer in the following, what would you do?
(What are the additional steps/ information that you would include in your answer presentation)?


  1. (a) "no" signifies that the answer is neither prime nor composite.
    (b) I could write out another number divisible by the question.

  2. (1) The answer is wrong because the question is asking if the number is a prime or composite but he/she is not stating either of the options. ' No' also implies that the number is neither prime nor composite.
    (2) You write down one factor of the number besides one or itself if the number is a composite.
