A composite number is defined as a positive integer which can be obtained by multiplying two smaller numbers other than 1. Always ignore 1 in these calculations. Even number is divisible by 2 while odd is not.

For example 4 is a composite number because 2 x 2 = 4. It is also an even number.

5 is a prime number. It is an odd number.

Similarly 6 is a composite number because 2 x 3 = 6. It is an even number.

7 is a prime number. It is an odd number.

Also, 8 is a composite number because 2 x 4 = 8. It is an even number.

9 is also a composite as 3 x 3 = 9. It is an odd number.

and so on ...

Based on above explanation -

23 is a prime number not divisible by any smaller number (ignoring 1). It is an odd number.

33 is a composite number because 3 x 11 = 33. It is an odd number.

56 is a composite number because 7 x 8 = 56. It is an even number.

89 is a prime number. It is an odd number.

Just for information the list of composite numbers from 1 to 100 is -

4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 39, 40, 42, 44, 45, 46, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 60, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 68, 69, 70, 72, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 80, 81, 82, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 98, 99 and 100.

89 and 33 are the odd numbers from the choices you gave. Composite numbers are numbers that can be divided by a number other than itself. We can't divide 89 by anything other than 89. 33 on other hand can be divide by 3 and 11. So that is the correct answer.

It is a fairly easy question.

Oh I just noticed that 23 is an odd number too but it's a prime so it's irrelevant. The answer is 33.

23, 56, and 33 are the numbers you have mentioned. Odd numbers can also be composite numbers. A composite number is a number which can be obtained by multiplying 2 numbers other than 1 and the number itself.

21 is an odd number and it is a prime number also. 3 X 7 = 21.

33 is an odd number and it is a prime number also 3X11 = 33.

Like that there are some odd composite numbers also.

21 is an odd number and it is a prime number also. 3 X 7 = 21.

33 is an odd number and it is a prime number also 3X11 = 33.

Like that there are some odd composite numbers also.
