Certificate on successful completion of this course.

In this online course, you will learn Empty Relations, Universal Relations, Trivial Relations, Reflexive Relations, Symmetric Relations, Transitive Relations, Equivalence Relations, Equivalence Classes. For further understanding of concepts and for examination preparation, practice questions based on the above topics are discussed in the form of assignments that have questions from NCERT Textbook exercise, NCERT Examples, Board’s Question Bank, RD Sharma, NCERT Exemplar etc. instead of only one book. The PDF of assignments can be downloaded within the course.


The following list of questions are just meant for reference before purchasing membership. The list might or might not include NCERT Questions as it depends on the chapter/course. Some chapters have NCERT questions combined in the Assignments and some chapters have separate NCERT questions and Assignments. For complete details, please check the index of the course in the "About Course".
