It depends, many people do count 0 as a natural number, but MOST do not. So for most HS text book, the answer is NO, all whole numbers are not natural numbers and the reason is 0 is a whole number but not a natural number.

No, whole numbers can be minus something as well. Natural numbers is from 1 up.

Yes, if all of the whole numbers are positive ones.

Whole numbers are usually defined as the number 0,1,2,3,4,5,6.... where "...." means it goes on forever. These are the natural numbers with the number 0 added to them. So the natural numbers are 1,2,3,4,5,6...The integers are all the whole number and all the negatives of the natural numbers....-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4...So every whole number is an integer.Every natural number is an integer.Every integer is NOT a whole number. ( look at -2)Every integer is NOT a natural number. ( look at -3)The set of integers contains the set of natural numbers and contains the set of whole numbers.The set of whole numbers contains the set of natural numbers.

56 is a rational whole natural number. Or to put it another way: 56 is a Natural number, but as all natural numbers are also whole numbers 56 is also a whole number, but as all whole numbers are also rational numbers 56 is also a rational number. Natural numbers are a [proper] subset of whole numbers; Whole numbers are a [proper] subset of rational numbers. The set of rational numbers along with the set of irrational numbers make up the set of real numbers
