Prime numbers can not composite as - Prime number has only 2 factors whereas composite have more than 2

No. It IS true that every whole number is either prime or composite. But there are numbers that are not whole numbers, such as 2.5, which are neither prime nor composite.

Any two prime numbers are relatively be prime?

Any two different prime numbers are relatively prime because relatively prime numbers are sets of two or more numbers having 1 as their greatest common factor.

It is true. Two numbers are relatively prime if they do not have any factors in common greater than 1. A prime number has only two factors - 1 and itself. Thus, two different prime numbers will only have 1 as a common factor, which means they are relatively prime.

Two composite numbers may or may not be relatively prime, depending on their factors. Relatively prime numbers are sets of two or more numbers having 1 as their greatest common factor (gcf). All even numbers have 2 as a common factor, so no even number is relatively prime with any other even number.

No it is not. A prime number has only 2 factors which are 1 and itself. Composite numbers are everything else except 1 and 0. 1 and 0 are neither prime, nor composite.

false sometimes it contains 2 primes it always comes out to a prime number

True(Prime factorization is to write a composite number as a product of its prime factors).

True. By definition for two numbers to be relatively prime they must not share any common factors. So their greatest (and only) common factor would be 1.

is every multiple of five a composite number true or false

True - but the statement is also true for all prime numbers, so is not a particularly useful statement.
