Q.1. Is zero a rational number? Can you write it in the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0?
Ans. Yes, zero is a rational number. We can write it in the form (p/q).
That is zero Q.2. Find six rational numbers between 3 and 4.
Ans.
We know that there are an infinite number of rational numbers between two rational numbers. We will multiply both the numbers, 3 and 4, with 6+1=7 (or any number greater than 6). Therefore, six rational numbers between 3 and 4 can be: ∴  The numbers in between 21/7 and 28/7 will be rational and will fall between 3 and 4. Q.3. Find five rational numbers between (3/5)  and (4/5).
Ans.
There are infinite rational numbers between (3/5)  and (4/5).
To find out 5 rational numbers between (3/5)  and (4/5), we will multiply both the numbers,  (3/5)  and (4/5), with 5+1=6 (or any number greater than 5)
Example: Therefore, the numbers in between 18/30 and 24/30 will be rational and will fall between (3/5)  and (4/5).
Hence, are the 5 rational numbers between (3/5)  and (4/5).

Q.4. 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.
Ans.
(i) True: (∵ The collection of all natural numbers and 0 is called whole numbers)
(ii) False: (∵ Integers such as –1, –2 are non-whole numbers)
(iii) False: (∵ Rational number (1/2) is not a whole number)
