Products of Integral Domains and Fields: Structure

ABSALG-5JX76I

Let $R_1$ and $R_2$ be integral domains.

Which of the following is true of $R_1 \times R_2$

A

$R_1 \times R_2$ is also an integral domain.

B

If $R_1$ or $R_2$ is a field, then $R_1 \times R_2$ is an integral domain.

C

If both $R_1$ and $R_2$ are fields, then $R_1 \times R_2$ is an integral domain.

D

$R_1 \times R_2$ is never an integral domain.
