Whole numbers are called integers. There are positive integers, for example, 3, and its opposite, a negative integer, -3.

No. All whole numbers are integers and all integers are whole numbers.

Whole numbers are generally speaking numbers that are "whole" or without fractions and decimals. Generally they are considered to be the natural numbers (or counting numbers) plus zero. The set of whole numbers is {0, 1, 2, 3, ...}. Positive integers are numbers in the set of integers that are greater than zero. The integers {..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. The positive integers {1, 2, 3, ...}. So generally the only difference is whether or not zero is included. Note that there are arguably different sets that can be called whole numbers (such as without the zero, or even somewhat rarely all integers positive and negative).

The set of integers is the same as the set of whole numbers.

Yes, by definition all positive integers are whole numbers.

They both exclude fractions and irrational numbers. Natural numbers are a subset of whole numbers (also called integers); Natural numbers are any positive whole number (meaning any whole number 1 or greater). Whole numbers, also called integers, can be zero or negative.
