Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a) doesn't make sense because you can't dot product two scalars b) doesn't make sense because you can't combine a vector and a scalar by addition c) doesn't make sense for same reason as b (unless k is a constant) d) makes sense (even if k is a constant)
