Solution

## The correct options are A Reflexive only D symmetric onlyGiven tha S=1,2,3,4,5 and A=S×SA relation R on A is defined as follows :"(a,b)R(c,d)" if and only if ad=cd(i) R is reflexive, since ab=ab, therefore, (a,a)R(b,b)∀a,b∈S(ii) R is symmetric, since (a,b)∈R ⇒(b,a)∈R∀a,b∈S(iii) R is not transitive (a,b),(b,c)∈R doesnot necessarily imply (a,c) belongs to R
