Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A Prime numbers can only be divided by 1 and themselves, while composite numbers have other factors as well. This is why A is correct. The others are wrong because 19 is prime, 12 is composite, and 25 is composite but not for the reason the answer says.
