Every square number (except 1) is composite. Prime numbers only have two factors, one and the numbers themselves. Since square numbers also have at least the square roots as factors, they have to be composite.

Greater than one, numbers are either composite or prime, never both.

Yes, of course. In fact the product of any two numbers is composite unless one of them is 1.

You can figure out the "composite numbers" from any table of primes - all the positive integers that are not prime numbers are composite (the number one should also be excluded). The first four composite numbers are:4, 6, 8, 9

Yes. All numbers with 0 in the one's column are composite, having at least the factors of 1, 2, 5, and itself. The number 0 is also composite, having all numbers as factors.

The sum of three consecutive odd numbers must be divisible by 3. As 59 is not wholly divisible by 3 the question is invalid. PROOF : Let the numbers be n - 2, n and n + 2. Then the sum is 3n which is divisible by 3. If the question refers to three consecutive numbers then a similar proof shows that the sum of these three numbers is also divisible by 3. Again, the question would be invalid.
