    yes it can be possible because let zero matrix or take a diagonal non zero matrix whose trace is zero then it will be diagonalizable
  • Ankur Rao thankyou
    option (a) is true only. a) as if A is zero matrix then the above matrix will also be zero and we know zero matrix is diagonal matrix contain zero in diagonals. so it will be true...
