This thesis is devoted to investigating some properties of the sequence (Wn) of the denominators. This is a divisibility sequence; that is, Wm | Wn whenever m | n. Our task here is to examine a conjecture on the number of prime terms in (Wn), well known as the Primality conjecture. We will prove that there is a uniform lower bound on n beyond such that all terms Wn have at least two distinct prime factors. In some cases, the bound is as low as n = 2.
