Based on my school maths and some other references I was always of the opinion that 1 is NOT a prime number. But recently I saw an explanation in the OG 11th edition which said that 1 is a prime number. I need to look up the problem number so I can prove it... I will do so later today.

Is this one of those GMAt thinggies where they stick to one particular rule, the reality be damned? Or is 1 really a prime number?

One is not a prime number.

A quote from OG 11 states (page 108) - " A prime number is a positive integer that has exactly two different positive divisor, 1 and itself. The number 1 is not a prime number since it has only one positive divisor.

I will post the question number in the evening. I made a note specifically on the scratch paper I was using, but I forgot to note down the question number.
