1/3 ??

I am also getting the same ,but in gate key they have given as 3.
–1
the question is ratio of maximum and minimum so obviously it would be 3/1 which is just 3

But eigen values are -1,-2,-3 so maximum is -1 and min is -3 .Then we need to take mod of their ratio.This is what i can conclude

Sum of eigen values is -6 and their product is also -6 Obviously theyre 1 2 and 3 in magnitude. Maximum 3 ,minimum 1. Ratio is 3

qsn is saying absolute value of ratio of max to min...and you are finding ratio of absolute values of max and min...both are different

Ohh yes thanks for pointing out the error :)

If we solve this we will get total 4 eigen vectors,but as we know that this is of 2 degree matrix so only 2 will exist.So can i say that from these four pairs by using nay 2 ,i can derive the other?If yes,then how?
