**Question.19.**

** **

** Solution.**

**Solution.**

**Question.20. Prove that the relation R in the set A = {1,2,3,4,5} given by R={(a, b): \a-b\ is even}, is an equivalence relation.**

** Solution:** A = {1,2,3,4,5}

R = {(a, b): \ a – b \ is even}

For equivalence relation, the relation must be (i) reflexive, (ii) symmetric and (iii) transitive.

Now, R = {(1,3), (2,4), (3,5), (1,5), (1,1), (2,2), (3,3), (4,4), (5,5), (3,1), (4,2), (5,3), (5,1)}

(i) Reflexive: Since 1R1,2R2,3R3,4R4,5R5

.^{.}.R is reflexive.

(ii)Symmetric: Since
