NBHM Problem...

Let be a nilpotent linear operator on the vector space $\mathbb{R}^5$ (i.e., $T^k=0$ for some k). Let $d_i$ denote the dimension of the kernel of $T^i$. Which of the following can possibly occur as a value of $(d_1,d_2,d_3)$


For the excellent proof using Jordan Canonical form visit

Here we present a proof (incomplete in preciousness) on the fact "A linear transformation is completely determined by its behaviour on a basis."
