Objects with a binary operator

 

1.
A group is a set of objects with a binary operator which has satisfy various conditions. Suppose G is a set of elements with a binary operation ⋆. Select each condition which is required for ( G , ⋆ ) to be an group:

For any elements f, g, and h in G, (f * g) * h = f * (g * h).

There exist an identity element e in G such that for all g in G, g * e = e * g = g.

For all elements g in G, there exists an element g-1 in G such that g * g-1 = g-1 * g = e.

For any elements f, g in G, f * g = g * f.

For any elements f, g in G, the element f * g is also in G.

2.
What is the order of the following cycle given in cycle notation (Please enter an integer):

(1 2 3 4 5) (6 7 8)

3.
True or False: The following cycle has an even parity:

(1 2 3 4)

4.
True or False: The cube always has an even parity (the number of cubies exchanged from the starting position is always even).

5.
