Could you please tell me the logic of printing a prime gap series within a given range i.e. 1 1 2 2 4 2 6....?

**What I have tried:**

int T,N,flag=0,i,j; Scanner scan = new Scanner (System.in); T = scan.nextInt(); N = scan.nextInt(); for(i=T;i <= N; i++) { for(j=2;j

The code you have provided is incomplete. Please edit your question and show us the actual code you have so far. Because, as is, this just seems like a "write down for me the part of my homework that I did not try to do myself" game. It's not a fun game for us, and it's a dangerous game for you if you are serious about learning development.

That is a mathematics question (and far from clear), not programming. Google will find you lots of white papers on prime numbers.

Very clever.

Well, it was hard, but eventually I found it! :-D

Prime is prime numbers. You need to find the list of prime numbers between the 2 given numbers. Aka 000 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 ...

Gap is the difference between 2 concecutive prime numbers in the list

Gap between 3 and 5 is 2

Gap between 5 and 7 is 2

Gap between 7 and 11 is 4

Gap between 11 and 13 is 2
