Dear Sir, Study of the chapter on Real Numbers suggests that any number which can't be written in the form of p/q is an irrational number and decimal expansion of every rational number (which can be expressed in the form p/q)is either terminating or non-terminating recurring. Then what about those numbers whose decimal expansion is non-terminating as well as non-recurring. Are they irrationals? If not, then what are they.

Yes. The decimal expansion of an irrational number is non-terminating, non-recurring.
