D.

Don't know how to explain with theorems. I just substituted values:
N = 2, 5, 6, 13, 16, 24
Prime Factors = 2, 5, 2x3, 13, 2^4, 2^3 x 3
N/2 = 1, 2.5, 3, 6.5, 8, 12
Prime=Y, Y, N, Y, N, N

I got D as the answer.
From the stem : h > 1 i.e., h can be [2, infinity]

I use => to state "it imples that"

(1)Each prime factor is sqrt(h) => the primefactors start with 2,3,5 etc.
=> h can be 2 or 3. The smallest primefactor is 2 and if we prove 'greater than' relation with it, the remaining numbers automatically are proved as for the relationship. Then 2 > sqrt(2) or sqrt(3). But, h cannot be 4. However, h be it 2 or 3 is prime and thus answers the question.

(2)Here also, h can be 2 or 3.
The smallest primefactor is 2 and if we prove 'greater than' relation with it, the remaining numbers automatically are proved as for the relationship.
B'cos 2 > 2/2 or 3/2. But, h cannot be 4.
However, h be it 2 or 3 is prime and thus answers the question.

So, it is D.
