On a set $A = \{a,b,c,d\}$ a binary operation $*$ is defined as given in the following table. $\begin{array}{|c|cccc|}\hline\text{*}&a&b&c&d\\\hline \text{a}&a&c&b&d\\\text{b}&c&b&d&a\\\text{c}&b&d&a&c\\\text{d}&d&a&c&b\\\hline \end{array}$ The relation is Commutative but not associative Neither commutative nor associative Both commutative and associative Associative but not commutative
