Let $$A$$ be $$a\,2 \times 2$$ matrix with real entries. Let $$I$$ be the $$2 \times 2$$ identity matrix. Denote by tr$$(A)$$, the sum of diagonal entries of $$a$$. Assume that $${a^2} = I.$$
Statement-1 : If $$A \ne I$$ and $$A \ne - I$$, then det$$(A)=-1$$
Statement- 2 : If $$A \ne I$$ and $$A \ne - I$$, then tr $$(A)$$ $$\ne 0$$.
A
statement - 1 is false, statement -2 is true
B
statement -1 is true, statement - 2 is true; statement - 2 is a correct explanation for statement - 1.
C
statement - 1 is true, statement - 2 is true; statement - 2 is not a correct explanation for statement - 1.
D
statement - 1 is true, statement - 2 is false.

Let $$A$$ be a square matrix all of whose entries are integers.
Then which one of the following is true?
A
If det $$A = \pm 1,$$ then $${A^{ - 1}}$$ exists but all its entries are not necessarily integers
B
If det $$A \ne \pm 1,$$ then $${A^{ - 1}}$$ exists and all its entries are non integers
C
If det $$A = \pm 1,$$ then $${A^{ - 1}}$$ exists but all its entries are integers
D
If det $$A = \pm 1,$$ then $${A^{ - 1}}$$ need not exists
