1. 2N has one prime divisor
2. 3N has one prime divisor

C.

1: n could be 1 or a power of 2.
2: n could be 1 or a power of 3.

from i and ii, n is 1. so it has no prime divisor.

From(i)

2N has one prime divisor means, that the divisor is 2. Thus N has no prime divisor

From(ii)

3N has one prime divisor means, that the divisor is 3. Thus N has no prime divisor

C.

Stat 1:
N = 1 or N = 2, both have 2 as the only prime divisor

Stat 2: same as for stat 1

Together:
N can only be 1.
