All counting numbers ARE (not is!) a proper subset of the set of whole numbers.

They are not. 0 (which is a whole number) is not considered a counting number(natural #).

All of the whole numbers from 10 to 99.

Yes. All prime numbers and composite numbers are positive integers, or whole counting numbers. That leaves infinitely many numbers that are neither prime nor composite. If you intended to narrow the scope of your question to the whole counting numbers or to the positive integers, then there are NO such numbers that are neither. A counting number, however large, will be either prime or composite.

-3 is a real, rational, whole integer. But then, -- All integers are real rational whole numbers. -- All whole numbers are real rational integers. -- All rational numbers are real. -- All counting numbers are real, rational, whole integers.

They all are, unless you have a really weird way of counting.

All integers are whole numbers and conversely. -6 is not a counting or Natural number.

All of the counting numbers are whole numbers. Counting numbers consist of 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Whole numbers are numbers that have no fractional parts. Since none have fractional parts, they are all whole numbers.

they are almost all equivalent - whole numbers also have the number 0, which natural numbers (counting numbers) do not.

no

Whole numbers are integers that do not include decimals or fractions as for example the whole numbers in the number line

Whole numbers are the set of natural or counting numbers inclding zero

No. None are because the opposite of a real number is an imaginary number. In real numbers there are rational, irrational, counting, whole numbers, and integers.
