(i) The rational number that does not have a reciprocal.

(ii) The rational numbers that are equal to their reciprocals.

(iii) The rational number that is equal to its negative.

Answer :

(i) The rational number 0 has no reciprocal because there is no rational number which when multiplied with 0, gives 1.

(ii) We know that the reciprocal of 1 is 1 and the reciprocal of -1 is -1. Thus,1 and -1 are the only rational numbers which are their own reciprocals.

(iii) 0 is the rational number which equal to its negative.
