Bob wins.

Else if Primes are-not products of distinct primes then:

4, 25 and 121 have no winners so Alice will have the only choice of choosing 100 and then:

100 > 10 > 1

Bob wins.
false if the sum is a prime square, the only way not to repeat primes is for Alice to take the sqrt and Bob to divide by the sqrt a second time.
