Heh, yeah.. my next guess:
The question was "What kind of people can answer this riddle?" So, although @rand al'thor has responded to the longest word, the answer is Stack Exchange Puzzling users.

The longest words that can be made with these letters appears to be
If you allow the letter A (even though 1 is usually taken to be neither prime nor composite), then the longest word made of only those letters would be

Though that's more then one word, but a good string of bad adjectives may help.
Body must be at least 30 characters; you entered 18.
