    Answer:

    a. 1

    For example, let’s take the numbers 4 and 5

    4 = 2 x 2

    5 = 5

    HCF is 1

    b. 2

    For example, let’s take the numbers 2 and 4

    2 =2

    4 =2 x 2

    HCF = 2

    c. 1

    For example, let’s take the numbers 3 and 5

    3 = 3

    5 = 5

    HCF = 1

    d. 1

    Definitely one because they don’t have any other factors except one and itself.
