    I got this question recently, I completed it but I do not know if it is correct. Could someone work it out?

    Thanks!
    "Only" three factors ought to qualify the search to 1, itself and it's square root (which must be prime).

    Then I agree completely with that 3rd post,
    with emphasis on the word "only" in the question.

    Sorry for the ambiguity of the question guys, I don't have the question booklet so I can't remember the exact question...
