Shapes when tessellated fit neatly together with no overlaps or gaps

Nope... there will always be spaces around the circles - even when they're touching.

because there are to many sides * * * * * Each interior angle of a regular nonagon is 140 degrees. At any point in the tessellated plane, a whole number of shapes must come together and the sum of their interior angles must be 360 degrees. 140 does not go into 360 and so a regular nonagon cannot tessellate.

All shapes

4D shapes are shapes in four dimensional space. Since we live in 3D space it is very difficult for most people to visualise 4D shapes.

no it can not i have research it thoroughly i could not find any pictures of a regular decagon tessellated. i did but they all had different shapes so the answer is no it is not logically possible

A chessboard is tessellated, so I assume it is a figure that is checkered.

No

A square is one of the simplest shapes that can be tessellated. Tessellation is the means of using a repeated shape to build a larger shape with no gaps or overlaps.
