(viii) All prime numbers (except 2) are â€¦â€¦â€¦

**Solution:-**

All prime numbers (except 2) are odd numbers.

**3. State whether the following statements are true (T) or false (F):
(i) The sum of three odd numbers is an even number.**

**Solution:-**

False

For example, take three odd numbers 1, 3 and 5.

Then, sum of three odd numbers = 1 + 3 + 5

= 9 is an odd number

(ii) The sum of two odd numbers and one even number is an even number.

**Solution:-**

True

For example, take two odd numbers 1, 3 and one even number 4.

Then, sum of two odd numbers and one even number = 1 + 3 + 4

= 4 + 4

= 8 is an even number

(iii) The product of two even numbers is always an even number.

**Solution:-**

True

For example, take two even numbers 2, 4

Then, product of two even numbers = 2 Ã— 4 = 8 is an even number.

(iv) The product of three odd numbers is an odd number.

**Solution:-**

True

For example, take three odd numbers 1, 3 and 5

Then, product of three odd numbers = 1 Ã— 3 Ã— 5 = 15 is an odd number.

(v) If an even number is divided by 2, the quotient is always an odd number.

**Solution:-**

False

For example, take an even numbers 8

Then, divide an even number by 2 we get = 8/2

= 4 is an even number.

**(vi) All prime numbers are odd.**

**Solution:-**

False

AllÂ theÂ prime numbers except 2Â areÂ odd.

(vii) All even numbers are composite.

**Solution:-**

False

(viii) Prime numbers do not have any factors.

**Solution:-**

False

(ix) A natural number is called a composite number if it has at least one more factor other than 1 and the number itself.

**Solution:-**

True

(x) Two consecutive numbers cannot be both prime.

**Solution:-**

False

(xi) Two prime numbers are always co-prime numbers.

**Solution:-**

True
