Whole numbers are all integers from \(0 \hspace{3}to \hspace{3} + \infty\)

GMAT doesn't generally use the terms whole numbers (0, 1, 2....) and natural numbers (1, 2, 3, ...).
In many questions, you will find that variables are integers (... -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3...) so you have to consider positive and negative values.
They could also give you positive integers which would be 1, 2, 3, ...
or non-negative integers which would be 0, 1, 2, 3, ...
