Question

Consider the point   then

Solution

Correct option is

P, Q, R are non-collinear.

 and consider the determinant

                

Using R3 → R3 – cos θ R2 – sin θ R1

                

                  

                 

                  

Thus Δ ≠ 0 and t5he points P, Q, R are non-collinear.
