Answer: False

A rational number is any number can be expressed as a fraction. Whereas, a whole number is a positive number without a decimal or fractions.

Every rational number is may or may not be a whole number.

Let us consider some rational numbers,

1/4, 2/4, 4/4……..

If you consider

4/4 = 1

It is a whole number.

If you consider

2/4 = 0.5

It is not a whole number.

So every rational number is may or may not be a whole number but every whole number is a rational number.
