No. 1 is neither a prime number nor a composite number.

a prime number has two factors - 1. the number itself

2. one (because one divides every number)

a composite number has a lot of factors i.e, more than two factors at least.

1 has only one factor that is 1 itself and no other number divides the number 1.

thus 1 is neither a prime number nor a composite number.
