# Number of binary operations on the set {a, b} are

A. 10 B. 16 C. 20 D. 8

**Solution:**

A binary operation * on {a, b}

is a function from {a, b} × {a, b} → {a, b}

i.e., * is a function from

{(a, a), (a, b), (b, a), (b, b)} → {a, b}

Hence,

the total number of binary operations on the set {a, b} is

2^{4} = 16.
