No

The OA is correct ... Nothing is said about where we start the set. Indeed, it could be -1*2 the greastest or -1*3 or -1*7

The second statment clarifies this ambiguity as there is only 1 even that is a prime number : 2

Lesson learned from the question is that -2, -3, -5, -7, -11 and so on are not prime and only +ve integers can be prime.
