Procedure for findin prime implicants is
1.find all possible iimplicants
2.then from those implicants which cover at least one term covered by that implicant only are essential prime implicants

see below ans for k map

The EPIs are:

(0,2,8,10)

(8,12,10,14)

(7,15)

how many PI is possible 2 or 3??

0
4 PI possible. Each of the EPI is PI & (14,15) is also PI as it is not a subset of single other implicant.
