Let $A$ be a $2×2$ real matrix with entries from $\{0, 1\}$ and $|A|\neq0$. Consider the following two statements :

(P)$\quad \text{If }A \neq I_2, \text{then }|A|=-1$

(Q)$\quad \text{If }|A|=1, \text{then }tr(A)=2$

where $I_2$ denotes $2×2$ identity matrix and $tr(A)$ denotes the sum of the diagonal entries of $A$. Then :

(1) (P) is true and (Q) are false

(2) Both (P) and (Q) are true

(3) Both (P) and (Q) are false

(4) (P) is false and (Q) is true

Ans. (2) Both (P) and (Q) are true

Sol. Let $A = \begin{bmatrix}a&b\\c&d\end{bmatrix}\quad a, b, c, d \in \{0, 1\}$

$|A| = ad - bc \neq 0$

$\implies ad = 1,\ bc = 0 \quad\text{or}\quad ad = 0,\ bc = 1$

(P) If $A \neq I_2 \implies ad \neq 1$

$\implies ad = 0,\ bc = 1$

$\implies |A| = –1\quad$ (P) is true.

(Q) If $A = I \implies ad = 1$

$\implies ad = 1,\ bc = 0$

$\implies tr(A) = 2\quad$ (Q) is true.
