The relation \(R\) in the set \(A\) of points in a plane given by \(R = \{(P, Q)\) : distance of the point \(P\) from the origin is same as the distance of the point \(Q\) from the origin\(\}\), is a) Reflexive only b) Symmetry C) both reflexive and symmetry but not transitive d) Is an equivalence relation. Also show that the set of all points related to a point Pis not equal to (0,0) is the circle passing through P with origin as centre.
