Q1.

**Answer :**

An irrational number is a real number that cannot be reduced to any ratio between an integer *p* and a natural number *q*.

If the decimal representation of an irrational number is non-terminating and non-repeating, then it is called irrational number. For example

Q2.

**Answer :**

Every rational number must have either terminating or non-terminating but irrational number must have non- terminating and non-repeating.

A rational number is a number that can be written as simple fraction (ratio) and denominator is not equal to zero while an irrational is a number that cannot be written as a ratio.
