Best Answer

Yes, zero is the smallest whole number. One is the smallest counting or natural number.

Another opinion

0 (called "zero" or "nil") means "nothing exists" so 0 cannot itself be a real number.

So the smallest whole number is 1. (Also known as "one" or "unity".)

What is the difference between smallest prime and smallest whole no?

"Smallest prime" would usually be taken as the number 2."Smallest whole number" is more problematic, since "whole number" may refer to any of the following:The set of integers (in this case, there is no smallest whole number)Natural numbers, including zero (0, 1, 2, 3...)Natural numbers, excluding zero (1, 2, 3, 4, ...)Even the term "natural numbers" may or may not include zero. Traditionally it doesn't include zero, but according to the Wikipedia article on natural numbers, "There is no universal agreement about whether to include zero in the set of natural numbers".Because of this ambiguity, it is better to avoid the use of the term "whole number", and instead use more specific terms, for example, "integers", "positive whole numbers" and "non-negative whole numbers".
