No. Equilateral heptagons (7 sided figures) do not tessellate the plane. Not if no other polygons are allowed. But if you allow a (non-equilateral) pentagon then you might be able to tessellate the plane!

A regular hexagon will tessellate; some other hexagons will but the majority will not.

A regular polygon is a polygon in which all the angles and sides are equal, say on a regular polygon if one side is 15cm if you know that they are all equal, all the other sides are 15cm, also you can assume on a regular polygon, that if one angle is 75o all the other angles are 75o

Equilateral triangle or any other type of a regular polygon.

Most polygons are not regular. A regular polygon is one in which all the sides are the same length AND all angle are the same measure. An irregular polygon is one for which either one or the other (or both) of these requirements are not met.

Most regular polygons will not - by themselves. In fact, of the regular polygons, only a triangle, square and hexagon will. No other regular polygon will create a regular tessellation. However, for polygons with any number of sides, there are irregular versions that can tessellate.

For any polygon, there will be other shapes such that, together, they can tessellate.

Certain polygons, yes. Squares, Triangles and Hexagons are all shapes which, in their regular form, can tessellate. Other polygons cannot.

It will tessellate if its vertices divide into 360 degrees evenly. The only regular polygons that will tessellate are an equilateral triangle, a square and a regular hexagon. There are other, non-regular, polygons that will tessellate.

A regular hexagon will tessellate. Other hexagons may or may not tessellate.

Some polygons will tessellate,some with tessellate along with one or more other polygons,some will not tessellate.These classes have no specific names.

It is a regular polygon

Only an equilateral triangle, square and a regular hexagon can be used to make regular tessellations but there are innumerable polygonal and non-polygonal shapes which will tessellate by themselves, and others which will tessellate along with other shapes.
