    see the first page...where u can see the definition of Group...Now in the second page ,the Matrices that I have written that will follow all properties of group...such as {I, sigma x} Check this ...here first (I *sigma x)=sigma x belongs to that group...so proof of (a) closure property... Similar it follows all the property of the group...Such a way, we can form 16 matrices that I have written...
