# The sum of two prime numbers $(>2)$ is

**(A)** odd **(B)** even **(C)** prime **(D)** even or odd

**Sum of two prime numbers: **

All the prime numbers except **2 **are odd numbers.

The sum of two odd numbers is an** even **number.

Therefore, **the sum of two prime numbers $(>2)$ is an even number.**

So, **option (B) is correct.**
