$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;\text{A is singular}\\(B)\;\text{A is non singular}\\(C)\;\text{A is symmetric}\\(D)\;\text{A is square}\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

Now $|A|$ is non zero
$\therefore A^{-1}$ exists
As $AB=AC$
$\Rightarrow A^{-1}(AB)=A^{-1}(AC)$
$\Rightarrow B=C$
So A is non-singular.
Hence (B) is the correct answer.
