If you mean the set of non-negative integers ("whole numbers" is a bit ambiguous in this sense), it is closed under addition and multiplication. If you mean "integers", the set is closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication.

No.

Yes!

negetive integers are not closed under addition but positive integers are.

The set of integers is not closed under multiplication and so is not a field.

The numbers are not closed under addition because whole numbers, even integers, and natural numbers are closed.

No.

You don't say that "an integer is closed". It is the SET of integers which is closed UNDER A SPECIFIC OPERATION. For example, the SET of integers is closed under the operations of addition and multiplication. That means that an addition of two members of the set (two integers in this case) will again give you a member of the set (an integer in this case).
