The answer depends on your mathematical ability.

Not necessarily, for example: If you subtract 3 from 4, then you get +1. But if you subtract 4 from 3, you get -1. The answer will always be an integer, but you cannot make a general statement about the sign, without knowing more information.

Yes

Sometimes. For example: (-4) - (-3) = -1 (-4) - (-4) = 0 (-4) - (-5) = 1

You will get a positive integer. If you subtract a negative number, you will be adding it. I think of it like 2 minuses equals a plus. :P
