Question 16

Let R be the relation in the set N given by R = {(a, b): a = b − 2, b > 6}. Choose the correct answer.
(A) (2, 4) ∈ R
(B) (3, 8) ∈R
(C) (6, 8) ∈R
(D) (8, 7) ∈ R

Answer

R = {(a, b): a = b − 2, b > 6}

Now, since b > 6, (2, 4) ∉ R

Also, as 3 ≠ 8 − 2, (3, 8) ∉ R

And, as 8 ≠ 7 − 2

∴(8, 7) ∉ R

Now, consider (6, 8).

We have 8 > 6 and also, 6 = 8 − 2.

∴(6, 8) ∈ R

The correct answer is C.
