gap between twin primes = 2 and its infinite... but between 2 and 3 there is a gap = 1, is the gap of 1 also infinite?

only one. I didn't think about it. So there is only one gap of 1 of all prime numbers. Interesting

If the gap between two primes in 1, then one of them must be even. Of course there's only one even prime.
