It is an incomplete definition of a rational number.

Probably because that's more or less the definition of "rational number": a number that can be expressed as a ratio of integers.

It is a rational number.

a rational number

Yes it is. That is the definition of rational numebrs.

The quotient of two nonzero integers is the definition of a rational number. There are nonzero numbers other than integers (imaginary, rational non-integers) that the quotient of would not be a rational number. If the two nonzero numbers are rational themselves, then the quotient will be rational. (For example, 4 divided by 2 is 2: all of those numbers are rational).

Quotient of integers means dividing integers, so it is a fraction or a rational number all depending on how you look at it.

A rational number

Yes.

Yes. Rational numbers are always the quotient of two integers. Integers are always real, and you cannot divide a real number by another real number and get an imaginary number. So, true.

They are called a rational number.
