Recall (M, +) is called an R-module if there is an operation • : R × M → M

such that

(1) r • (x + y) = r • x + r • y (2) (r + s) • x = r • x + s • x (3) (rs) • x = r • (s • x)

(4) 1R • x = x

For all r, s ∈ R, and x, y ∈ M .

Now let the sets in part (a) to (d) be A, B, C, D respectively.

(a) A is not K -module: because 0K • x ...
