Expert's answer
To answer the questions it is necessary to specify the definition of the term whole numbers, which in fact does not have a consistent definition.& Various authors use it in one of the following senses
* the nonnegative integers (0, 1, 2, 3, ...)
* the positive integers (1, 2, 3, ...)
* all integers (..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...)

The following definitions are standard:
& Natural numbers are
& {1,2,3,…}
Integer numbers are
