An irrational number is not a terminating decimal and it also can't be expressed as a fraction.

If it is a terminating or recurring decimal then it is not irrational. If it is an infinite, non-recurring decimal, it is irrational.

Neither; it is a non-repeating, non-terminating decimal - it is an irrational value.

No, no repeating decimal is irrational. All repeating decimals can be converted to fractions. They are, however, non-terminating.

It is non-terminating decimal and therefore it is an irrational number

An irrational number is not a terminating decimal and it also can't be expressed as a fraction.

If it is a terminating or recurring decimal then it is not irrational. If it is an infinite, non-recurring decimal, it is irrational.

Pi is an irrational number

A terminating decimal is a decimal number with a definite end. For example, pi has no end and is irrational. 25.33 has an end and is therefore a terminating decimal.

No, it cannot.

An irrational number has a decimal representation that is non-terminating and non-repeating.

Either. If it is non-terminating but recurrent (after some point) it is rational. If it is non-terminating AND non-recurrent then it is irrational.

A terminating decimal is a rational number. A non-terminating, repeating decimal is a rational number. A non-terminating, non-repeating decimal is an irrational number.
