An arrow can be a polygon. A polygon is any two dimensional plane figure. An arrow can, obviously, be a three dimensional object.

An arrow head has 4 sides and it is a quadrilateral polygon

Heptagon

This question is very difficult to answer because of the ambiguity of what an "arrow" is. An arrow that you might fire from a bow is a three dimensional object and so is not a polygon. An arrow drawn as a straight line with a direction indicator at its head with or without tail feathers (for example <|----<< : oh, the graphics on this browser are so good, aren't they!) is not a polygon because the shaft is a line: a 1-dimensional object. An arrow such as the default one used to represent the cursor in Windows is a concave heptagon.

The polygon is not a arrow. It is a shape.

No. A polygon is a CLOSED figure.

It could be, if it is a regular stick arrow then no.

Yes, there is. For example, a box-letter arrow is a polygon. A stick-letter arrow is not, because it is not in 1 piece

It is an irregular polygon.

No but it is a quadrilateral because it has 4 sides

If it is the outline of an arrow, and is made up of only straight lines, then it is a polygon. I tried to "draw" one, as an example, but the browser used at this site completely messed it up.
