So, mr. Munkner, please classify both the statements below as either "true" or "false". Whatever your answers are, we've already understood the logic beneath them, so you don't need to spend time explaining why these statements are true or false.

1) The number 5 (positive five) is a prime number. True or false?
2) The number -5 (negative five) is a prime number. True or false?

Please do follow my guidelines strictly, as I personally have a very hard time understanding math which doesn't present itself to me according to them.

Thanks a lot,

1 is false,
2 is true.
