**Quote:**

In the case of *k* = 1, which satisfies both the statements we do not know if *k* is prime.

1 is NOT a prime number. So there is no ambiguity for

*k* = 1. In the case of

*k* = 1,

*k* is NOT prime.

**Prime number is a positive integer, greater than 1, which has no other positive divisors, except 1 and itself.**Also note that if

*k* = 1, then there would be no prime numbers in the set {1, 1, 8}. Thus this value doesn't fit statement (2).
