A. All whole numbers are integers. ➺ Whole numbers include numbers from 0 to above. Integers include all numbers (negative & positive ones). Hence, all whole numbers are integers.

____________________

B. All natural numbers are whole numbers. ➺ As said above, whole numbers include numbers from 0 to above. Natural numbers on the other hand include numbers from +1 to above (right side of the number line). So, all natural numbers come under whole numbers.

____________________

C. All integers are whole numbers. ➺ Integers include both negative & positive numbers while whole numbers only include numbers from 0 to above (right side of the number line). Since, negative numbers don’t come under whole numbers, integers can’t be categorised as whole numbers. •°• All integers are not whole numbers…..but all whole numbers are integers.

____________________

D. All fractions of form , where p and q are integers and q 0, are rational numbers. ➺ This is the definition of rational numbers. All fractions are under rational numbers, so this definition stands true for fractions as well.

____________________ ⟹ So, the statement which doesn’t match or is NOT true will be ➳ C. All integers are whole numbers.

### C)All integers are whole numbers.

Step-by-step explanation:

### A)

whole numbers are the numbers 0 to +∞ (not including fraction, numbers i.e 6.89 etc)

integers are the numbers -∞ to +∞ (not including fraction, decimal numbers i.e -5.57, 7.74 etc)

since integers are the numbers including whole numbers thus the statement is true

### B)

Natural numbers are the numbers 1 to +∞ (not including fraction, decimal numbers i.e 6.89 etc)whereas whole numbers are the numbers 0 to +∞ (not including fraction, numbers i.e 6.89 etc)

hence, the statement is true

### C)

All Whole numbers are integers but not all integers are whole numbers

therefore, the statement is not true

### D)

the given definition is the perfect definition of rational numbers

hence, the statement is true
