Question-8 :-  (i) (A + A′) is a symmetric matrix
(ii) (A – A′) is a skew symmetric matrix

Solution :-
```(i)
```
```(ii)
```

Question-9 :-

Solution :-
```
```

Question-10 :-  Express the following matrices as the sum of a symmetric and a skew symmetric matrix:

Solution :-
```(i)
```
```(ii)
```
```(iii)
```
```(iv)
```

Question-11 :-  If A, B are symmetric matrices of same order, then AB – BA is a
(A) Skew symmetric matrix   (B) Symmetric matrix   (C) Zero matrix   (D) Identity matrix

Solution :-
```  A and B are symmetric matrices, therefore, we have:
A' = A, B' = B .........(I)
Consider
(AB - BA)' = (AB)' - (BA)' [(A - B)' = A' - B']
= B'A' - A'B'   [(AB)' = B'A']
= AB - BA       [By equation I]
Thus, (AB − BA) is a skew-symmetric matrix.
The correct answer is A.
```

Question-12 :-  (A) π/6   (B) π/3   (C) π   (D) 3π/2

Solution :-
```
The correct answer is B.
