Time : 1:00 – 4:00

SECTION-A                                             (10X2=20)              Answer ALL the questions.

1. Let R be the set of all numbers. Define * by x*y=xy+1 for all x,y in R. Show that  is commutative but not associative.
2. Define a partially ordered set and give an example.
3. Show that the intersection of two normal subgroups is again a normal subgroup.
4. Give an example of an abelian group which is not cyclic.
5. Let G be the group of non-zero real numbers under multiplication. and f:GG  be defined

by f(x)=x for all xG. Is this map a homomorphism of G into G?  Justify.

1. If f is a homomorphism of a group G into a group G’ then prove that kernel of f is a

normal subgroup of G.

1. Prove that an element a in a Euclidean ring R is a unit if d(a)=d(1).

8 Let Z be the ring of integers. Give all the maximal ideals of  Z.

1. Show that every field is a principal ideal domain.
2. Find all the units in Z[i]={x +iy/x,y Z}

SECTION-B                                                             (5X8=40)

1. Prove that a non-empty subset H of a group G is a subgroup of G if and only if HH=H and H=H-1.
2. Let H be a subgroup of a group G. Then prove that any two left coset in G are either identical or have

no element in common.

1. Show that a subgroup N of a group G is a normal subgroup of G iff every left coset of N in G is a

right coset of N in G.

1. Prove that any group is isomorphic to a group of permutations.
2. Prove that an ideal of the Euclidean ring R is a maximal ideal of R if and only if it is generated by a

prime element of R.

1. Show that Qis a field under the usual addition and multiplication.
2. Let R be an Euclidean ring. Then prove that any two elements a and b in R have a greatest common

divisor   d   which can be expressed by  a + b.

1. Show that every finite integral domain is a field.

SECTION-C                                                       (2X20=40)

1. a) If H and K are finite subgroups of a group G then prove that  o(HK)= o(H)o( K)/o(H
2. b) Prove that every subgroup of a cyclic group is cyclic.                            (12+8)
3. a) Prove that there is a one-one correspondence between any two left cosets of a subgroup

H in G and thereby prove the Lagrange’s theorem.

1. b) State and prove Euler’s theorem and Fermat’s theorem.                                                         (10+10)
2. a) State and prove Fundamental homomorphism theorem for groups.
3. b) Let R be a commutative ring with unit element whose only ideals are (0) and R itself.

Prove that R is a field.                                                                                                               (12+8)

1. a) State and prove unique factorization theorem.
2. b) Let R be the ring of all real valued functions on the closed interval [0,1].
