• A.

Real part

• B.

Imaginary part

• C.

Both

• D.

None of them

C. Both
Explanation
A complex number has both a real part and an imaginary part. The real part represents the horizontal component of the number, while the imaginary part represents the vertical component. Together, these two parts form a complex number in the form a + bi, where a is the real part and bi is the imaginary part. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both."

### Graphical representation of the complex numbers is called:

• A.

Argands diagram

• B.

Polar form

• C.

Non polar form

• D.

None of these

A. Argands diagram
Explanation
An Argand diagram is a graphical representation of complex numbers. It consists of a coordinate plane where the real part of a complex number is represented on the x-axis and the imaginary part is represented on the y-axis. The diagram helps visualize complex numbers as points in a plane, making it easier to understand their properties and relationships. Polar form and non-polar form are not related to the graphical representation of complex numbers, so they are not the correct answers.

### A derivative of tan(x)

• A.

Sec2(x)

• B.

Cot(x)

• C.

Sec(x)

• D.

Cosec2(x)

A. Sec2(x)
Explanation
The derivative of tan(x) is sec^2(x). This is because the derivative of tan(x) can be found using the quotient rule, which states that the derivative of f(x)/g(x) is (g(x)f'(x) - f(x)g'(x))/[g(x)]^2. In this case, f(x) = sin(x) and g(x) = cos(x), so the derivative of tan(x) is (cos(x)*cos(x) - sin(x)*(-sin(x)))/[cos(x)]^2 = (cos^2(x) + sin^2(x))/[cos(x)]^2 = 1/[cos^2(x)] = sec^2(x). Therefore, the correct answer is sec^2(x).

### A derivative of 2x3 is

• A.

6x

• B.

6x2

• C.

12x

• D.

None of these

B. 6x2
Explanation
The correct answer is 6x2. To find the derivative of 2x3, we use the power rule of differentiation. The power rule states that when differentiating a term with a variable raised to a power, we bring down the power as a coefficient and decrease the power by 1. Applying this rule to 2x3, we bring down the power of 3 as a coefficient, resulting in 6x3. Then, we decrease the power by 1, giving us 6x2. Therefore, the derivative of 2x3 is 6x2.

### A derivative of sec x is

• A.

-sec x tan x

• B.

-cosec2x

• C.

-cos x

• D.

Cot2x

A. -sec x tan x
Explanation
The correct answer is -sec x tan x. The derivative of sec x can be found using the quotient rule. Applying the quotient rule, we differentiate the numerator (which is 1) and get 0, and then differentiate the denominator (which is cos x) and get -sin x. Dividing these results and simplifying, we get -sec x tan x.

### A matrix is said to be _______ if the number of rows is not equal to the number of columns of a matrix.

• A.

Rectangular

• B.

Square

• C.

Diagonal

• D.

None of these

A. Rectangular
Explanation
A matrix is said to be rectangular if the number of rows is not equal to the number of columns of a matrix. In a rectangular matrix, the number of rows and columns are different, meaning that the matrix does not have an equal number of rows and columns. This is in contrast to a square matrix, where the number of rows is equal to the number of columns. A diagonal matrix refers to a matrix where all the non-diagonal elements are zero. "None of these" is not the correct answer as it does not accurately describe a matrix with unequal rows and columns.

A. Singular matrix
Explanation
A square matrix A is said to be singular if its determinant (|A|) is equal to 0. This means that the matrix does not have an inverse and its columns are linearly dependent. In other words, the matrix cannot be inverted and its rows or columns can be expressed as a linear combination of the other rows or columns. Therefore, if |A| is equal to 0, the matrix A is a singular matrix.

A. Diagonal
Explanation
A matrix is said to be diagonal if all the non-diagonal elements are 0. In other words, a diagonal matrix is a square matrix where all the elements outside the main diagonal (the diagonal from the top left to the bottom right) are 0. This means that the only non-zero elements in a diagonal matrix are on the main diagonal.

### A derivative of cot x

• A.

-cosec2 x

• B.

Sec2 x

• C.

-tan x

• D.

Cos2 x

A. -cosec2 x
Explanation
The given expression is a derivative of cot x. The derivative of cot x can be found by using the quotient rule of differentiation. The quotient rule states that if we have a function f(x) = g(x)/h(x), then the derivative of f(x) is given by (g'(x)h(x) - g(x)h'(x))/[h(x)]^2. In this case, g(x) = 1 and h(x) = tan x. Taking the derivatives of g(x) and h(x), we get g'(x) = 0 and h'(x) = sec^2 x. Plugging these values into the quotient rule formula, we get (-0 * tan x - 1 * sec^2 x)/[tan x]^2, which simplifies to -sec^2 x/[tan x]^2. Since sec^2 x = 1/[cos x]^2 and [tan x]^2 = [sin x]^2/[cos x]^2, we can further simplify the expression to -cosec^2 x. Therefore, the correct answer is -cosec^2 x.
