An eigen vector X of the equation AX = X can not correspond to (a) more than one (b) less than one (c) more than two (d) less than zero 15. The sum of the eigen values of a matrix A is equal to (a) its value of the determinant (b) trace of A (c) its rank (d) its nullity 0 0 16. The characteristic equation of the matrix A = 0 0 0 0 (a) 3 = 6 (b) 3 + = 0 (c) 3 = 1 (d) 3 = 0 17. If the characteristic equation of the square matrix A is 2 - 4 = 0 then A4 = ( where I is the second order unit matrix ) (a) 64 I (b) 16 I (c) 4 I (d) I 18. The diagonal matrix has the eigen values of A as its (a) diagonal (b) positive (c) real (d) row 19. If 1 , 2 , 3 are the eigen values of matrix A and An = BDn B 1 then Dn = n 1 0 0 (a) 0 n 0 2 0 0 n 3 1 0 0 (b) 0 2 0 0 0 3 n 0 0 1 (c) 0 n 0 2 n 0 0 3 n 1 0 0 (d) 0 n 0 2 0 0 n 3 20. The modal matrix is obtained by grouping the (a) Eigen values into a square matrix (b) Eigen vectors into a square matrix (c) each column of the elements (d) diagonal elements of a square matrix elements 6 0 is 0 eigen value of the matrix A. 2 0 2 2 are 1 2 0 5 are 3 4 6
