Any multiple of 6 is even.
Any two-digit prime number is odd.

(even+odd)/2 is not an integer. Thus # does not yield an integer at all.

Therefore P=0.

Answer: A.

All two-digit multiples of 6 are even, and all two-digit prime numbers are odd. Thus, we are adding even + odd, which always yields an odd number. When that odd number is divided by 2, the result is a non-integer. If operation “#” is repeated, we will again obtain a non-integer, and, in fact, operation “#” will never yield an integer. Thus, the probability of yielding at least 2 integers is zero.

Answer: A
