Let h is not a prime number.

h=p1*p2*....*pn, where p1,...pn- prime numbers

1. h = p1*p2*....*pn > √h*√h*...*√h = h^(n/2) ==>
h > h^(n/2) ==> h^(n/2-1) < 1 ==> n = 1. SUFF.

2. h = p1*p2*....*pn > (h/2)^n ==>
h > (h/2)^n ==> 2^n > h^(n-1) ==> h < 2^(n/(n-1)) ==> h < 2^(1+1/(n-1)) ==> h < 4. 2,3 are prime numbers. SUFF.

from 1, if each prime factor is greather than sq root h then only possible facor is h as it will have 1 more pime facto less than sqrt(h) otherwise so h is prime

if each prime factor is more than h/2 then also only possible factor is h so h is prime

hence any of the statement is possible to answer the question

so D is the correct choice.
