No, a whole number can either be an even or odd number as long as it doesn't contain a fraction.

Whole Numbers: 1, 2, 874687, 99, 681444

NOT Whole Numbers: 1/2, 9/85, .55454

---Yeah, but the question is asking if every whole number is a positive, not odd. So, yes all whole numbers are positive. If every whole number isn't positive that is saying that every whole number is an integer. Integers include positive and negative numbers and 0 on the number line. Whole numbers are 0, 1, 2, 3,... and Natural numbers are 1, 2, 3,... Integers are...-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,....
