34. Let A be a square matrix all of whose entries are integers. Then which one of the following is true?
(1) If detA = 1, then A
1
exists but all its entries are not necessarily integers
(2) If detA 1, then A
1
exists and all its entries are non-integers
(3) If detA = 1, then A
1
exists and all its entries are integers
(4) If detA = 1, then A
1
need not exist

Sol: (3)
Each entry of A is integer, so the cofactor of every entry is an integer and hence each entry in the
adjoint of matrix A is integer.
Now detA = 1 and A
1
=
1
det(A)
all entries in A
1
are integers.

Sol: (4)
Let and 4 be roots of x
2
6x + a = 0 and , 3 be the roots of x
2
cx + 6 = 0, then
+ 4 = 6 and 4 = a
+ 3 = c and 3 = 6.
We get = 2 a = 8
So the first equation is x
2
6x + 8 = 0 x = 2, 4
If = 2 and 4 = 4 then 3 = 3
If = 4 and 4 = 2, then 3 = 3/2 (non-integer)
common root is x = 2.

Directions: Questions No. 71, 72 and 73 are based on the following paragraph.

Wave property of electrons implies that they will show diffraction effects. Davisson and Germer demonstrated
this by diffracting electrons from crystals. The law governing the diffraction from a crystal is obtained by
requiring that electron waves reflected from the planes of atoms in a crystal interfere constructively (see in
figure).

parts are held together by a ring made of a metal strip of cross sectional area S
and length L. L is slightly less than 2R. To fit the ring on the wheel, it is heated so
that its temperature rises by T and it just steps over the wheel. As it cools down to
surrounding temperature, it presses the semicircular parts together. If the
coefficient of linear expansion of the metal is , and its Youngs' modulus is Y, the
force that one part of the wheel applies on the other part is :

force. When a current is passed through the coil it starts oscillating; it is very difficult to stop. But if an
aluminium plate is placed near to the coil, it stops. This is due to :
(1) development of air current when the plate is placed.
(2) induction of electrical charge on the plate
(3) shielding of magnetic lines of force as aluminium is a paramagnetic material.
