No, the question doesn't specify *how many* consecutive primes.

Python scripts to find the answer might be....

Constraining it more, you could specify it's 11 consecutive primes
that we're looking for.

Teacher's note:

Some students may not write a sieve or other
prime-finding algorithm but instead screen
scrape from a table off the web (e.g. OEIS).
Other's may start with a cut and paste list
of consecutive primes gotten from who knows
where.  If the question is this open ended,
then be accepting of a diverse set of solutions.
