Class act (Posted on 2002-05-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
31 students in a row were numbered 1,2,...,31 in order. The teacher wrote down a number on the blackboard.

Student 1 said "the number is divisible by 1",
Student 2 said "the number is divisible by 2",
and so forth...until
Student 31 said "the number is divisible by 31".

The teacher remarked: "Very well pups, but two of you gave a wrong statement, and those two sit besides each other". Determine those two.
