It's impossible as the addition of two vectors is commutative i.e. A+B = B+A.For subtraction of two vectors, you have to subtract a vector B from vector A.The subtraction of the vector B from A is equivalent to the addition of (-B) with A, i.e. A-B = A+(-B).

the difference between resultant vector and resolution of vector is that the addition of two or more vectors can be represented by a single vector which is termed as a resultant vector. And the decomposition of a vector into its components is called resolution of vectors.

Vector addition does not follow the familiar rules of addition as applied to addition of numbers. However, if vectors are resolved into their components, the rules of addition do apply for these components. There is a further advantage when vectors are resolved along orthogonal (mutually perpendicular) directions. A vector has no effect in a direction perpendicular to its own direction.

In vector addition, the sum of two (or more) vectors will give a resultant vector. There are a number of sites that will help you with tutorials. A link to one can be found below.

Polygonal Prism Actually, it is a polygonal pyramid. A polygonal prism would have two polygonal faces.

In addition of vector when vector A whose head is joined to the tail of the vector B and then the tail of the vector A is linked with the tail of the resultant vector and the head of the vector B is joined with the head of the resultant vector..... it means the addition of vectors are also defined the head to tail rule..

yes

the opposite to vector addition is vector subtraction.

reverse process of vector addition is vector resolution.

Vector addition derives a new vector from two or more vectors, and vector resolution is breaking a vector down into its two or more components.

Yes.

The rule for vector addition is so intuitive that it was certainly well known by Heron of Alexandria (First Century AD). The origin of the phrase used in the question probably predates that.

There is no difference between vector addition and algebraic addition. Algebraic Addition applies to vectors and scalars: [a ,A ] + [b, B] = [a+b, A + B]. Algebraic addition handles the scalars a and b the same as the Vectors A and B
