The additive inverse of EVERY positive rational number is a negative number.

Yes, almost half of them have additive inverses which are negative.

As far as positive numbers are concerned, the additive inverse of a positive number is a negative number with the same magnitude (i.e. the additive inverse of 5 is -5). It would be wrong to simply say that "negative" and "additive inverse" are correct, because the additive inverse of a negative number is a positive number.

negative of a number gives its additive inverse

The additive inverse for a number is its negative value. The sum of an integer and its additive inverse is zero. For the example (5), the additive inverse would be (-5).

Zero.

yes

Zero.

Additive Inverse would be the number that when added to a given number creates a total of zero. The additive inverse for any negative number would be the positive counterpart. The additive inverse of -5 is 5. The additive inverse of -2 is 2, since -2 + 2 = 0.

The "additive inverse" is essentially the NEGATIVE of a number. The term is used to avoid confusion when taking the negative of a negative integer. The additive inverse of any number n is (-1)n.

Yes.
