    The problem is just routine knowing the corresponding theory. At any case, some hints:

    $\displaystyle (a)\quad Y(t)=e^{tA}\begin{bmatrix}{c_1}\\{c_2}\end{bmatrix }=\ldots$

    $\displaystyle (b)\quad A$ has a positive and a negative eigenvalue.

    $\displaystyle (c)\quad Y(t)=e^{tA}\begin{bmatrix}{\;\;1}\\{-1}\end{bmatrix}=\ldots$
