About half of math literature consider it as a natural number, and about half consider it as not..

Excluding or including 0 as a natural number has their own merits, mathematicians say.. So there's really no standard answer to this. It just depends on the context of where you're using natural numbers. And yes please read @Wired's post above, he has a link explaining it.

So as a summary; The whole world doesn't take 0 as a natural number though there are some exceptions. & Even if u give exam u should write 0 = natural no. otherwise u know what is the result LOL. @Ray951 k! my friend
