Abstract: Let $ h \geqslant 2$. There exists an asymptotic basis $ A$ of order $ h$ such that $ ({a_1}, \ldots ,{a_k}){\text{ > 1}}$ for all $ {a_1} \ldots ,{a_k} \in A$ if and only if $ k{\text{ < }}h$. If $ k \geqslant h$, the sumset $ hA$ contains only composite numbers. For $ h = k$, there exists a set $ A$ of nonnegative integers with $ ({a_1}, \ldots ,{a_h}){\text{ > }}1$ for all $ {a_1}, \ldots ,{a_h} \in A$ such that for every prime $ p$ the sumset $ hA$ contains all sufficiently large multiples of $ p$.
