Nope, the original problem statement didn't say what should should
happen if n does have such factors. Clearly, it's only describing a
program fragment.
"""1.Given a positive integer n , assign True to is_prime if n has no factors other than 1 and itself. (Remember, m is a factor of n if m divides n evenly.)
