Answer

False.

Work Step by Step

A differential equation doesn't have to contain the first derivative, it has to contain some sort of derivative, not specifically the first derivative. For example, $f''(x)-x=0$ doesn't contain $f'(x)$, but it is still a differential equation, since it has a derivative in it.
