Yeah, A it is.

1 is the common factor between any two positive integers.

Yes, A.

I almost chose D until I realized my mistaken reasoning. I'm not good with number theory questions.

A)u and v are consecutive integers.
GCD of any two consecutive integers is always 1
(Sufficient)

B)v is a prime number.
if v = 7 and u = 14 then GCD = 7
if v = 11 and u = 22 then GCD = 11
(Insufficient)
