The lowest prime number is two because it has only two factors, one and 2 (itself) which is what a prime number is.

2 is considered to be the lowest prime number because 1 is a common factor to all numbers and is considered insignificant

Number 2 is considered the lowest or smallest prime number. 1 is of no significance because all numbers have 1 as a factor. 0 is not a factor of any other number

2 is prime because it meets the definition of a prime: it is a positive integer only divisible by itself and 1.
