(i) From the given system equation, the output depends upon present input only. Hence the system is static. i.e. memory less.

(ii) The system equation is y[n] = n x[n]. The output depends upon present input only. Hence the system is causal.

(iii) The given discrete time system equation is

y[n] = T{x[n]} = n x[n] ---------- 1

When input x[n] is delayed by ‘k’ samples, the response is

y[n, k] = T{x[n - k]}

∴y[n, k] = n x[n - k] ------------ 2

Here, it is seen that only input x[n] is delayed. The multiplier ‘n’ is not part of the input. Hence it cannot be written as (n - k).

Now let us shift or delay the output y[n] given by equation 1 by ‘k’ samples i.e.

∴y[n - k] = [n – k] x[n – k] ------------- 3

Here both n and x[n] in the equation y[n] = n x[n] will be shifted by ‘k’ samples since they are part of the output sequence. Therefore from equations 2 and 3

y[n, k] ≠ y[n - k]

Hence the system is time variant.
