Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Diagonalizability can fail only if there are repeated eigenvalues. However, matrices with repeated eigenvalues may still be diagonalizable ( ex: identity matrix, situations when we have a p dimensional eigenspace corresponding to an eigenvalue with multiplicity p)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its obvious tht if two eigen values r same then the two eigen vectors corresponding to those values will be same :)) thanks @akitav
