Matrix, A =

A.  orthogonal 
B.  nonsingular 
C.  have A^{1} exists 
D.  both (b) & (c) 
Option: D Explanation : Determinant A = 1 (cos2Θ + sin2Θ) Hence A is nonsingular and A^{1 }exists Click on Discuss to view users comments. hmaza said: (8:19am on Tuesday 30th April 2013)
singular means det is zero but answer b and c is true
