No. Real numbers are divided into two DISJOINT (non-overlapping) sets: rational numbers and Irrational Numbers. A rational number cannot be irrational, and an irrational number cannot be rational.

No. The prefix "i" in this case means "not"; in other words, "irrational" means "not rational." A real number can either be rational or irrational.
