I've split off the prime numbers part into its own question and re-used the variables from part a) in b) and c), so that the parts lead on from eachother.

In part c)i), ii) and iii), I really wanted the individual factors to be listed for each number, and then for the common factors in each individual list to be highlighted but I didn't know how to do this and I think Chris mentioned something would have to be created in order to do this.

I had 25 marked as prime in part b). I think you may need to update the marking matrix after removing the choice below?

I think I would avoid 1 as an option altogether in part (b). Whether 1 is prime or not will trip up a lot of students but is unlikely to be of importance in their studies; I think it's more important to test their knowledge of whether a number is or isn't composite, rather than catch them out on (arguably) a technicality.  

RE your problem in the comment below: h/6 is less than 6 ~50% of the time, so you could either re-think your variables, or use sort to arrange into the correct order, for example set up a new list of numbers containing the factors... sort([1,2,3,h/6,6...]).

There's a mix of singular and plural in the statement. I think I would write "A number that can be...".

"divided evenly by whole numbers" would be better as "divided without remainder..." to avoid confusion with even numbers.

Part (c) in the advice does not provide much additional informtation. I guess you haven't included all of the factors as it would be a pain! That's fine I think.

- There is a slight problem with variable h in the table in that sometimes its divisors are not in the right order.

I think this is a really good question and it works well. Just a few comments

Main Parts

In the statement i would write a definition of composite as well as some students might not know what this means.

a) good

b) in the question i would write "Identify which of the following are prime numbers:" instead of "Identify the prime numbers from below."

One of the numbers here for me was 43, which is a prime number, however if you say it is a prime number it is marked incorrect as the displayed answer is that it is composite.

Advice

Good job getting the list of factors thing to work!

b) you could put the numbers in the table in the order that they appear in the question but it's up to you. I would also write "composite" instead of "not prime".

Also you could extend the table a little bit to the right, so that some numbers don't go onto a new line in the divisors column.

Also, the bit in the advice that says 'Whilst $1$ technically fits the criteria for a prime number, it is not considered a prime number' needs to be changed. $1$ does not meet the criteria for being a prime as it only divides by $1$, whereas all other primes have two distinct divisors, themselves and $1$.

I would change the title to 'Identifying prime numbers' to make it clearer what the question is about. In the question I would change the word 'composite' to 'not prime', just to make the language a bit simpler.

This variable is an HTML node. HTML nodes can not be relied upon to work correctly when resuming a session - for example, attached event callbacks will be lost, and mathematical notation will likely also break.

If this causes problems, try to create HTML nodes where you use them in content areas, instead of storing them in variables.

Describe what this variable represents, and list any assumptions made about its value.

Select a part to edit.

Ask the student a question, and give any hints about how they should answer this part.

The correct answer is an equation. Use the accuracy tab to generate variable values satisfying this equation so it can be marked accurately.

Checking accuracy

Define the range of points over which the student's answer will be compared with the correct answer, and the method used to compare them.

Variable value generators

Give expressions which produce values for each of the variables in the expected answer. Leave blank to pick a random value from the range defined above, following the inferred type of the variable.

Run this script the built-in script.

This script runs after the built-in script.

To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.

In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.

Variable Answer to use Must be answered?

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:

These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
