Answer:

#GCF =1#

Explanation:

#2 and 5# are prime numbers, so the only factor they have in common is #1#

#6# shares the factor of #2# with #2#, but apart from #1# has no common factor with #5#

The following are the products of the factors;

#2 =1xx2#
#5 =1color(white)(wwwww)xx5#
#6 = 1xx2xx3#

It is clear that the only factor they have in common is #1#
