Toolbox:
  • A relation R in a set A is called $\mathbf{ reflexive},$ if $(a,a) \in R\;$ for every $\; a\in\;A$
  • A relation R in a set A is called $\mathbf{symmetric}$, if $(a_1,a_2) \in R\;\Rightarrow\; (a_2,a_1)\in R \; for \;a_1,a_2 \in A$
  • A relation R in a set A is called $\mathbf{transitive},$ if $(a_1,a_2) \in R$ and $(a_2,a_3) \in R \; \Rightarrow \;(a_1,a_3)\in R$ for all$\; a_1,a_2,a_3 \in A$
Given $ A=\{1,2,3\}$
 
$R=\{(1,1),(1,2)(2,1),(3,3)\}$
 
The relation does not contain (2,2)
 
Therefore R is not reflexive
 
The given statment that R is reflexive , symmetric and transitive is 'False'
