Can you guarantee that "Every Diagonal matrix" will be non-singular?
0
a diagonal matrix is the one in which the prinicipal diagonal elements are non zero....so yes it is non singular

Correct . Is there any other criteria given regarding matrix in the question?

no

Inverse of a diagonal matrix is obtained by taking reciprocal of the diagonal elements .

i.e if a diagonal element is a1 , in inverse it will be 1/a1.

But what if a1=0?

A diagonal matrix cannot have all elements as 0 , but it can have 0 elements right?

In that case , 1/0 is undefined.
