Considered the following inner products:

$(1)$ $\langle x,y \rangle = \sum_{t=1}^{n}x_{t}y_{t}$

$(2)$ $\langle x,y \rangle_{c} = \sum_{t=1}^{n}x_{t}\bar{y}_{t}$

consider the following surfaces:

$\underline{Surface (a)}$: $\langle x, x \rangle = 1$

$\underline{Surface (b)}$: $\langle x, x \rangle = \mathbb{i} = \sqrt{-1}$

$\underline{Surface (c)}$: $\langle x, x \rangle_{c} = 1$

In each of the above surfaces, how many points can one place so that the inner product (defined in both $(1)$ and $(2)$) between any pair of the points is purely imaginary of form $0 + \mathbb{i}r$ where $\mathbb{i}=\sqrt{-1}$ and $r \in \mathbb{R}$ and how many points are there so that the pairwise product is purely real of form $r \in \mathbb{R}$?

The case when we seek the pairwise inner product(both $(1)$ and $(2)$ to be purely real is infinite for surfaces $(a)$ and $(c)$ (Just restrict your sphere to have purely real coordinates and search among those points).

Likewise, the case when we seek the pairwise inner product(both $(1)$ and $(2)$ to be purely imaginary is infinite for surface $(b)$ (Just restrict your sphere to have purely imaginary coordinates and search among those points).

What happens in the following combinations?

$\underline{A}$:$(b)$ when we seek pure imaginary inner products (both $(1)$ and $(2)$).

$\underline{B}$:$(a)$ and $(c)$ when we seek pure real inner products (both $(1)$ and $(2)$).

$\underline{A}$ has been shown to have finitely many points ($O(n)$ atmost) by unknown(google) below.
