let V be a real n-dimensional vector space and let T:V-->V be a LT saisfying T(v)= - v for all v belongs to V.

1. show n is even

2.use T to make V into a cmplex vector space such that the multiplication by complex numbers extends the multiplications by real numbers

3. show that with respect to complex vector space structure on V obtained in 2. , T is a complex linear transformation

Have you left something out? This statement does not follow from just what you have stated.

PS: I found your mistake. You want *T*[sup]**2**[/sup](*v*)= −*v* for all *v* ∈ *V*.

I don't think your question is correct.
