If m is a positive integer, is √m a prime number?

I. √m leaves a remainder of 1 when divided by 6
That is √m=6x+1
If a number is a prime number greater than 3, it will surely be of the form 6k+1 or 6k-1, but give versa is not true.
For example, if √m could be 7, 13, that is a prime number, but √m as 25=6*4+1 or 49, it is not aprime .
Insufficient

II. m has 3 factors
Any number having three factors will always be a perfect square of a prime number.
The three factors will be 1√m and m..
Thus √m is a prime number.
Sufficient

B
