the only number that is neither prime nor composite is 1.

They are neither prime numbers nor composite numbers. It is because, they do not have two factors at least.

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.

No numbers are prime AND composite. The number 1 is neither.

Numbers other than prime prime numbers are composite numbers. Only whole numbers should be considered for prime & composite numbers. However, '1' is an exceptional case because it is neither prime nor composite.

no, they are both composite.

it's not

Look up a table of prime numbers. All those numbers that are not prime, are composite - except 1, which is neither prime nor composite.
