no it is a prime number (prime means its multiples are only 1 and itself composite numbers can have multiples of many other things)

1 is neither prime nor composite because there is only one set of multiples to receive 1, as opposed to 2 which is prime because there are two sets of multiples to receive 2, 2 X 1 and 1 X 2. To be prime there can only be two sets of multiples to receive the number, and for composite there has to be more than two.

no the only even number that is composite is two

There are only two multiples of five. The multiples are 1 and 5. 5 is a prime number. A prime number is when a number is or can only be multiplied by one or itself. (In this case itself is five.)

If it has only two factors then it is a prime number but if it has more than two factors then it is a composite number
