Thanks all, for showing keen interest in answering/trying to answer this questions.

But my question still remains unanswered D'Oh! | :doh:

However, I just wanted to put some info here.

Prime number : Numbers > 1, and which has 1 and itself as it factor is prime nuber.
Composite number : All non prime numbers are composite numbers.

What about 1 then ?
1 is neither prime nor composite.
