b. (of two complex numbers) differing only in the sign of the imaginary part as 4 + 3i and 4 -- 3i
c. (of two algebraic numbers) being roots of the same irreducible algebraic equation with rational coefficients
d. (of two elements of a square matrix) interchanged when the rows and columns are interchanged
e. (of two arcs) forming a complete circle or other closed curved figure
