All prime numbers - except 2 - are odd.

All prime numbers are odd except one prime number and that is 2.

All prime numbers are odd except for 2 which is the only even prime number

Yes, every prime number, except for the number 2, is odd.

This is because they are only two factors in that number. It may seem to you that all prime numbers odd, but it is not true. Most of them however, are prime numbers. This is why most of the odd numbers are prime numbers.

Yes.

All of them are except 2 which is even

Except for 2 all other prime numbers are odd. Otherwise, they would be divisible by 2 (and thus not a prime number). This does NOT mean that all odd numbers are prime, but that all prime numbers (aside from 2) are odd.

Prime numbers are integers that are not divisible by anything except one and themselves. All prime numbers (excepting two) are odd.

The question, "the" three odd prime numbers, is wrong. There are much more than three odd prime numbers - in fact, infinitely many. There are infinitely many prime numbers, and all except the number 2 are odd.

While all prime numbers are odd (except 2), not all odd numbers are prime. 9 for example is an odd number, but you can get it by multiplying 3X3, so it is not prime. Odd numbers are numbers that are not divisible by 2. Prime numbers are numbers that cannot be generated by multiplying 2 whole numbers besides 1 and itself.
