In order to know why 4 is the answer, let me explain to you what are composite and prime numbers.

Composite numbers

These are positive integers which have factors other than 1 and itself. In other words, it is not a prime number. Composite numbers, also called composites, have more than 2 factors and here are the composites from the numbers 1-10.

Also, all even numbers are composite numbers except 2.

Prime numbers

These are positive integers which have factors of 1 and itself only. Here are the prime numbers from 1-10.
