Prime numbers are natural numbers greater than 1 that has only divisors of 1 and itself.

The first 10 prime numbers are:

`2; 3; 5; 7; 11; 13; 17; 19; 23; 29; ... `

Therefore, Andrea would be correct.

Kyle is wrong as 1 is neither prime nor composite, and 5 is not included in the list between 3 and 7.
