Answer:B) 3times5equals15, which is not divisible by 2

Step-by-step explanation:Given is a statement that

The product of any two counting numbers is divisible by 2.

To prove it is wrong we must have atleast one counter example.

i.e. we must be able to illustrate with two counting numbers whose product is not divisible by 2

This is possible if we select 2 odd numbers so that the product would be odd and not divisible by 2.

Hence out of the statements given, A has one odd one even, also C and D

So only correct statement is

B) 3times5equals15, which is not divisible by 2
