**NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Vector Algebra ****Exercise**** 10.2: Ques No 19.**

If **a** and **b** are two collinear vectors, then which of the following are incorrect:

(A) **b** = λ**a**, for some scalar λ.

(B) **a** = ±**b **

(C) the respective components of **a** and **b** are proportional

(D) both the vectors **a** and **b **have same direction, but different magnitudes

**NCERT Solutions:**

**(D)** Since **a** and **b** are collinear vectors, so it is not necessary that they have same direction.

Thus, **a** and **b** may have opposite direction, their magnitudes may be different.
