Best Answer

Not all prime numbers are odd. There is one Prime number that is even: 2. A prime number is a number with two and only two factors: 1 (also known as unity) and itself. A composite number is a number with more than two factors. All even numbers are divisible by 2. Thus, all even numbers have 2 as a factor, which means that all even numbers greater than 2 have more than two factors, so they cannot be prime numbers.
