Which is a true statement about the number 1? One is a factor of every whole number since every number is divisible by itself. One is not a factor of any number because it is neither a prime number nor a composite number. One is a prime number because it has less than two factors. One is a composite number because it has more than two factors.

    1 is not a prime number. It only has one factor. A prime number is divisible by itself and 1.
