(A) 1/8
(B) 1
(C) 1/4
(D) 2

Answer: (A)

Explanation: Answer: 1/8
Determinant of A = 1*4*2 = 8 which is product of Eigen values.
Determinant of A-1 = 1/8 as determinant of inverse of matrix is inverse of determinant.
Determinant of Transpose (A-1) = 1/8 since determinant of transpose of matrix remains same as original one.
