There are decagons which will tessellate.

yes of course * * * * * A decagon does NOT tessellate. All triangles and quadrilaterals do, there are 14 tessellating pentagons and a number of hexagons (including regular hexagons). There are no tessellations which use polygons of the same shape - regular or irregular - for polygons with 7 or more sides.

There are decagons which will tessellate.

Yes. For example if you have a decagon in which the top, bottom and the four sides on the left are as in a regular decagon, and if the four sides on the right make the shape concave. These decagons will "slot" into one another.

No. No shape with 7 or more sides will tessellate with multiple copies of itself. All traigles and quadrilaterals will tessellate, there are 14 irregular pentagons (the last was discovered in 2016), and a number of hexagons - including the regular hexagon.

There are decagonal shapes which will tessellate the plane.

yes, most regular shapes can tessellate :)

True * * * * * No. The only regular polygons that will tessellate are a triangle, a square and a heagon. So a regular heptagon will not tessellate.

No, it can't be tessellate.

It will tessellate if its vertices divide into 360 degrees evenly. The only regular polygons that will tessellate are an equilateral triangle, a square and a regular hexagon. There are other, non-regular, polygons that will tessellate.

A square can tessellate but a regular pentagon can't tessellate

A regular pentagon will not tessellate.
