1 Which of the following is not a possibility for the multiset of the degrees of irreducible representations of a finite group over a splitting field of characteristic zero?

1,1 || Wrong. This arises as the degrees of irreducible representations for cyclic group:Z2. See linear representation theory of cyclic group:Z2.
1,1,2 || Wrong. This arises as the degrees of irreducible representations for symmetric group:S3, which can alternatively be viewed as the general affine group of degree one over field:F3. See linear representation theory of symmetric group:S3.
1,1,1,3 || Wrong. This arises as the degrees of irreducible representations for alternating group:A4, which can alternatively be viewed as the general affine group of degree one over field:F4. See linear representation theory of alternating group:A4.
1,1,1,1,4 || Wrong. This arises as the degrees of irreducible representations of GA(1,5), the general affine group of degree one over field:F5.
None of the above, i.e., they are all possibilities || Right. (1,1) arises for cyclic group:Z2, the others all arise for the general affine group of degree one GA(1,q) for q = 3,4,5 respectively. See linear representation theory of general affine group of degree one over a finite field.
