(A) for me

From 1
As m is composed of 4 prime numbers, we can do a combination of those prime numbers. The max number of factor will never change no matter the prime numbers that constitue it.

SUFF.

From 2
o m = 2 >>> 2 factors.
o m = 4 >>> 3 factors.

INSUFF.

I had also got A, but the OA and OE in the book are totally wrong, they consider 1 as prime (1 is definitely not a prime, I know GMAT does not consider 1 as prime so I will stick with that)

Absolutly. The OG states directly that the first prime number is 2.
