There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Statement 1 tells us that M is a negative number.......can be anything under the sun......

statement 2 tells us that N is a positive number......can be anything under the sun.......

M/N can be anything......prime, non-prime, non-integer.......

primes can be negative, right???? Isn't -2 a prime?? Is that the catch?????

am I missing something big

Right, the trick is that M/N is always negative—this fact is more than enough to say that the fraction will NEVER be a prime number. The smallest prime is 2.

I don't insist that it is a fraction. I simply insist that the answer is C. There are no negative primes. None at all. And probably will never be. It is a basic definition. You should have known that from your first breath as Depeche Mode sings.

Do you know negative primes? Supply us with an example!
