No.

Consecutive numbers will always total an odd number. Consecutive odd numbers or consecutive primes would be 5 and 7.

There are no two consecutive primes whose sum, difference, product or quotient is 56.However, there may be some non-standard binary operation such that two primes can be combined to make 56.

yes, 1 and 2

There are an infinite number of prime numbers which are consecutive odd integers. Choose any natural number n. Take all primes up to any number n, take their product, and add 1 and subtract 1 from it. These 2 numbers are consecutive odd integers. eg 2*3*5*7 = 210 209 and 211 are primes which are consecutive odd integers.
