Answer :

Given that * is a binary operation on set A defined by a*b = b for all a,b∈A.

We know that commutative property is p*q = q*p, where * is a binary operation.

Let’s check the commutativity of given binary operation:

⇒ a*b = b

⇒ b*a = a

⇒ b*a≠a*b

∴ The commutative property does not hold for given binary operation ‘*’ on ‘A’.

We know that associative property is (p*q)*r = p*(q*r)

Let’s check the associativity of given binary operation:

⇒ (a*b)*c = (b)*c

⇒ (a*b)*c = b*c

⇒ (a*b)*c = c ...... (1)

⇒ a*(b*c) = a*(c)

⇒ a*(b*c) = a*c

⇒ a*(b*c) = c ...... (2)

From (1) and (2) we can clearly say that associativity holds for the binary operation ‘*’ on ‘A’.
