is -5 a whole number?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

-5 is an integer and therefore in this case not a whole number.It is  important to note that some authors consider negative numbers as whole numbers.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Thank you. funny that you say "some authors" consider negative numbers whole numbers, Do we have to know what the test author or checker thinks about negative numbers?
