A square matrix is said to be lower triangular matrix if


(a) aij = 0 , i > j (b) aij = 0, i = j (c) aij = 0 , i < j (d) aij = 1, i = j 2. (AB)1 = (a) (BA)1 (b) B 1 A1 (c) B 1 A1 (d) A1 B 1 3. Matrix A is said to be skew - symmetric matrix if AT = (a) AT (b) -A (c) I (d) A 4. If A 0 1 = 2 1 2 1 1 0 0 4 , then A is 0 0

The system of equations AX = B has an innite number of solution if (a) R(AB) = R(A) = r = n (b) R(AB) = R(A) = r > n (c) R(AB) = R(A) > n (d) R(AB) = R(A) = r < n 9. If every minor of order r of a matrix A is non-zero, then rank of A is (a) equal to r (b) greater than or equal to r (c) less than r (d) less than or equal to r 10. The solution of system of equations x + y + z = 1 , 2x + 3y + 2z = 2, 5x + 4y + 3z = 3 is (a) x = 1 , y = 0 z = 0 (b) x = 0 , y = 0 , z = 1 (c) x = y = z = 0 (d) x = y = z = 1 1 1 2 1 is 11.

If X1 and X2 are two eigen vectors of a matrix A corresponding to the same eigen value of A then any linear combination of the form isalso gives eigen vector of A corresponding to the same eigen value (a) k1 X1 + k2 X2 (b) X1 + X2 (c) X1 X2 (d) k1 X1 k2 X2 16.
