If A and B are symmetric matrices,then $(ii)\quad BA-2AB\;is\;a\;\text{_______}$

This question has multiple parts. Therefore each part has been answered as a separate question on Clay6.com

Toolbox:
  • A square matrix A=[a$_{ij}$] is said to be skew symmetric if A'=-A that is $[a_{ij}]= -[a_{ji}]$ for all possible value of i and j.
  • A square matrix A=[a$_{ij}$] is said to be symmetric if A'=A that is $[a_{ij}]=[a_{ji}]$ for all possible value of i and j.
Given
A and B are symmetric matrices
$\rightarrow $ A=A'
$\rightarrow $B=B'
BA-2AB is a neither symmetric nor skew symmetric matrix.
