Best Answer

Yes. All prime numbers and composite numbers are positive integers, or whole counting numbers. That leaves infinitely many numbers that are neither prime nor composite. If you intended to narrow the scope of your question to the whole counting numbers or to the positive integers, then there are NO such numbers that are neither. A counting number, however large, will be either prime or composite.
