The correct option is **A** True

All numbers starting from 1,2,3,4,5... are natural numbers and all numbers starting from 0,1,2,3,4,5.. are the whole numbers.

So, 1,2,3,4,5 are both natural as well as whole numbers.Hence, all natural numbers are whole numbers.

## State whether the following statements are true or false. (i) Every natural number is a whole number.(ii) Every integer is a whole number. (iii) Every rational number is a whole number.

State whether the following statements are true or false. (i) Every natural number is a whole number. (ii) Every integer is a whole number. (iii) Every rational number is a whole number.

State whether the following statements are true or false. Give reasons for your answers(i) Every natural number is a whole number.

(ii) Every integer is a whole number.

(iii) Every rational number is a whole number.

**Solution:**

(i) Every natural number is a whole number.

This statement is true because the set of natural numbers is represented as N = {1, 2, 3...} and the set of whole numbers is W = {0, 1, 2, 3...}. We see that every natural number is present in the set of whole numbers. For example, 5 is a natural number as well as a whole number.

ii) Every integer is a whole number.

This statement is false because the set of integers is represented as Z = { -2, -1, 0, 1, 2...} and the set of whole numbers is W = {0, 1, 2, 3...}. We see that the negative integers are not the elements of the whole numbers set. Thus, negative integers are not a subset of whole numbers. For example, -2 is an integer but not a whole number.

iii) Every rational number is a whole number.

This statement is false as every number represented in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0 does not get simplified to a whole number. For example, 1/2 is a rational number, but not a whole number.
