a) 4

b) 1/4

c) –1/4

d) 2

**Answers: **b) 1/4

**4. The graph of x ^{2}+1 = 0 **

a) Intersects x‐axis at two distinct points.

b)Touches x‐axis at a point.

c) Neither touches nor intersects x‐axis.

d)Either touches or intersects x‐ axis.

**Answers:** c) Neither touches nor intersects x‐axis.

**5. If the sum of the roots is –p and product of the roots is –1/p, then the quadratic polynomial is**

a) k(–px^{2} + x/p + 1)

b) k(px^{2} – x/p – 1)

c) k(x^{2} + px – 1/p)

d) k(x^{2} – px + 1/p)

**Answers:** c) k(x^{2} + px – 1/p)

**CASE STUDY 2:**

**CASE STUDY 3:**

Basketball and soccer are played with a spherical ball. Even though an athlete dribbles the ball in both sports, a basketball player uses his hands and a soccer player uses his feet. Usually, soccer is played outdoors on a large field and basketball is played indoor on a court made out of wood. The projectile (path traced) of soccer ball and basketball are in the form of parabola representing quadratic polynomial.

** **

**1. The shape of the path traced shown is **

a) Spiral

b) Ellipse

c) Linear

d) Parabola

**Answer:** d) Parabola
