Consider the lines,

$${L_1}:{{x + 1} \over 3} = {{y + 2} \over 1} = {{z + 1} \over 2}$$

$${L_2}:{{x - 2} \over 1} = {{y - 2} \over 2} = {{z - 3} \over 3}$$

The shortest distance between $${L_1}$$ and $${L_2}$$ is :

The edges of a parallelopiped are of unit length and are parallel to non-coplanar unit vectors $$\overrightarrow a \,,\,\overrightarrow b ,\overrightarrow c$$ such that $$\widehat a\,.\,\widehat b = \widehat b\,.\,\widehat c = \widehat c\,.\,\widehat a = {1 \over 2}.$$ Then, the volume of the parallelopiped is :
A
$${1 \over {\sqrt 2 }}$$
B
$${1 \over {2\sqrt 2 }}$$
C
$${{\sqrt 3 } \over 2}$$
D

Consider three planes $${P_1}:x - y + z = 1$$$$${P_2}:x + y - z = 1$$$ $${P_3}:x - 3y + 3z = 2$$\$

Let $${L_1},$$ $${L_2},$$ $${L_3}$$ be the lines of intersection of the planes $${P_2}$$ and $${P_3},$$ $${P_3}$$ and $${P_1},$$ $${P_1}$$ and $${P_2},$$ respectively.

STATEMENT - 1Z: At least two of the lines $${L_1},$$ $${L_2}$$ and $${L_3}$$ are non-parallel and
