What’s wrong with my code??

if the number of query operations is large your code can not pass this time because of time complexity N*N.To pass your code in time you should apply segmented Tree or Binary Index Tree(BIT).

can i do it by seive or segseive? Reply earlier kindly.

use sieve with some modifications!
like don’t save primes just make a bool array and just look upto sqrt(1e7) for primes but mark till 1e7 (though 5e6 works) !

I can see the changes. But I’m still getting CLE. My code’s taking 1s on the second case.
