No not normally

If it's interior angle is a factor of 360 then it will tessellate such as a square, a regular hexagon and an equilateral triangle.

yes no yes no

It has two regular polygons which can be used together to tessellate a plane.

The answer depends on the size of the plane and of each polygon.

No not normally

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.

If it's interior angle is a factor of 360 then it will tessellate such as a square, a regular hexagon and an equilateral triangle.

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!
