1.) a semi-circle
2.) a circle
What’s interesting about the second one is that the only shape that has infinite sides is the only shape that also has only one side.
Side is what defines an indentation or protrusion (angle or arc).

Each point of each edge is a fractal. Thus, every possible shape is infinite.

Doesn't that mean the answer to "2" is every single real shape?
And thereby the answer to "1" is there are no such shapes in reality?
So still the word "only" doesn't apply to either question.

a circle is the only 1 sided shape that contains infinite angles

Again, that depends on how you define the word "side". Depending on how you define it, perfect circles can be zero-sided, one-sided, two-sided and so on. So far, you have refused to provide a clear definition.a circle is the only 1 sided shape that contains infinite angles
An angle is something that exists between two rays that share an end-point. And rays happen to be straight lines, don't they? Given that circles have no straight lines, I would say that circles have no angles whatsoever (rather than an infinity of them.)

2) Zero is not greater than every integer (i.e. there are integers greater than zero e.g. number one.)
3) Therefore, "zero" and "infinity" refer to two different concepts.

there is no such number as zero, zero is purely practical and allows for easier calculations in the indian derived digit system where it first originated as a dot(a case of form giving away a function) that was then made into a zero by the muslims who passed it onto Europeans. infinity is not a number but a paradox, there is no number that can define infinity whereas zero is only a defining function of a given number.
