If A = {1, 2, 3}, then a relation R = {(2, 3)} on A is
(a) symmetric and transitive only
(b) symmetric only
(c) transitive only
(d) none of these


(c) transitive only

The relation R is not reflexive because every element of A is not related to itself. Also, R is not symmetric since on interchanging the elements, the ordered pair in R is not contained in it.

R is transitive by default because there is only one element in it.
