Choose the correct answer satistying the following statements.

Question 138.
Statement (A) : The equation x2 + 3x + 1 = (x – 2)2 is a quadratic equation.
Statement (B) : Any equation of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0 where a ± 0, is called a quadratic equation.
i) Both A and B are true.
ii) A is true, B is false.
iii) A is false, B is true.
iv) Both A and B are false.
(iii)
Explanation:
We have, x2 + 3x + 1 = (x – 2)2
⇒ x2 + 3x + 1 = x2 – 4x + 4
⇒ 7x – 3 = 0, it is not of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0
So, A is incorrect but B is correct.
Hence (iii) is the correct option.

Question 139.
Statement (A) : The roots of the qua-dratic equation x2 + 2x + 2 = 0 are imaginary.
Statement (B) : If discriminant D = b2 – 4ac < 0, then the roots of quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 are imaginary.
i) Both A and B are true.
ii) A is true, B is false.
iii) A is false, B is true.
iv) Both A and B are false.
(i)
Explanation:
x2 + 2x + 2 = 0
∴ Discriminant, D = b2 – 4ac
= (2)2 – 4 x 1 x 2
= 4 – 8 = -4 < 0
∴ Roots are imaginary.
So, both A and B are correct and B explains Answer: Hence, (i) is the correct option.

Question 140.
Statement (A) : The value of k = 2, if one root of the quadratic equation
6x2 – x – k = 0 is $$\frac{2}{3}$$
Statement (B) : The quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, a ≠ 0 has two roots.
i) Both A and B are true.
ii) A is true, B is false.
iii) A is false, B is true.
iv) Both A and B are false.
(i)
Explanation:
As one root is $$\frac{2}{3}$$ ⇒ x = $$\frac{2}{3}$$

So, both A and B are correct but B does not explain Answer:
∴ Hence, (i) is the correct option.

Question 141.
Statement (A) : The equation 8x2 + 3kx + 2 = 0 has equal roots, then the value of k is ± $$\frac{8}{3}$$.
Statement (B) : The equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 has equal roots if D = b2 – 4ac = 0.
i) Both A and B are true.
ii) A is true, B is false.
iii) A is false, B is true.
iv) Both A and B are false.
(i)
Explanation:
8x2 + 3kx + 2 = 0
∴ Discriminant, D = b2 – 4ac
= (3k)2 – 4 x 8 x 2
= 9k2 – 64
For equal roots, D = 0
⇒ 9k2 – 64 = 0
⇒ 9k2 = 64
⇒ k2 = $$\frac { 64 }{ 9 }$$
⇒ 9k2 = ±$$\frac { 8 }{ 3 }$$
So, A and B both correct and B explains Answer: Hence, (i) is the correct option.

Question 142.
Statement (A) : The values of x are $$\frac{-a}{2}$$, a for a quadratic equation 2x2 + ax – a2 = 0.
Statement (B) : For quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0.
x = $$\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^{2}-4 a c}}{2 a}$$
i) Both A and B are true.
ii) A is true, B is false.
iii) A is false, B is true.
iv) Both A and B are false.
(iii)
Explanation:
2x2 + ax – a2 =0

So, A is incorrect but B is correct. Hence, (iii) is the correct option.

Question 143.
Statement (A) : The equation (x – p) (x – r) + λ(x – q) (x – s) = 0, p < q < r < s, has non-real roots if λ > 0.
Statement (B) : The equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, a, b,c ∈ R, has non-real roots if b2 – 4ac < 0.
i) Both A and B are true.
ii) A is true, B is false.
iii) A is false, B is true.
iv) Both A and B are false.
(iii)
Explanation:
Statement (A):
Let f(x) = (x – p) (x – r) + λ(x – q) (x- s)
f(p) = λ(p – q) (p – s)
f(q) = (q – p) (q – r)
f(s) = (s – p) (s – r)
f(r) = λ(r – q) (r – s)
If λ > 0, then f(p) > 0, f(q) < 0, f(r) < 0 and f(s) > 0.
⇒ f(x) = 0 has one real root between p and q and other real root between r and s.
Statement – B is obviously true. Option (iii) is correct.

Question 144.
Statement (A) : If roots of the equation x2 – bx + c = 0 are two consecutive integers, then b2 – 4c = 1.
Statement (B) : If a, b, c are odd integer, then the roots of the equation 4abc x2 + (b2 – 4ac)x – b = 0 are real and distinct.
i) Both A and B are true.
ii) A is true, B is false.
iii) A is false, B is true.
iv) Both A and B are false.
(ii)
Explanation:
Statement (A) : Given equation , x2 – bx + c = 0.
Let α, β be two roots such that |α – β| = 1. .
⇒ (α + β)2 – 4αβ = 1.
⇒ b2 – 4c = 1
Statement (B): Given equation
4abc x2 + (b2 – 4ac) x – b = 0
D = (b2 – 4ac)2 + 16 ab2 c
D = (b2 – 4ac)2 > 0
Hence roots are real and unequal. Option (ii) is correct.

Question 145.
Statement (A) : If 1 ≤ a ≤ 2, then $$\sqrt{a+2 \sqrt{a-1}}+\sqrt{a-2 \sqrt{a-1}}=2$$

x = $$\sqrt{3}-\sqrt{2}$$, x2 = 5 – 2$$\sqrt{6}$$
(x2 – 5)2 = 24
x4 – 10x2 + 25 = 24
x4 – 10x2 + 1 = 0
For polynomial equation with rational coefficients irrational roots occurs in pairs.
Option (i) is correct.

Let us consider a quadratic equation x2 + 3ax + 2a2 = 0.
If the above equation has roots α,β and it is given that α2 + β2 = 5.

Question 148.
Find value of ‘a’.
±1.
Explanation:
α + β = – 3a; αβ = 2a2
a2 + p2 = 5
⇒ (α + β)2 – 2αβ = 5
⇒ (- 3a)2 – 2(2a2) = 5
⇒ 9a2 – 4a2 = 5
⇒ 5a2 = 5 ⇒ a = ± 1

Question 149.

D > 0.
Explanation:
D = (3a)2 – 4(2a2)
= 9a2 – 8a2 = a2 = 1 > 0

Let us consider a quadratic equation x2 + λx + λ + 1.25 = O, where λ is a constant. The value of A such that the above quadratic equation has

Question 151.
Two distinct roots.
λ > 5 or λ < – 1.
Explanation:
The equation has two distinct roots if b2 – 4ac > 0.
∴ (λ – 5)(λ + 1) > 0
⇒ Either λ – 5 > 0 (or) λ + 1 > 0
⇒ λ > 5 (or) λ > -1
∴ λ > 5
⇒ λ – 5 <0 (or) λ + 1 < 0
⇒ λ < 5 (or) λ < – 1
∴ λ < -1 Hence the given equation has two dis-tinct roots for λ > 5 (or) λ < – 1

Question 152.
Two coincident roots.
λ = 5 or λ = -1.
Explanation:
The equation has two coincident roots if b2 – 4ac = 0
⇒ (λ – 5) (λ + 1) = 0
⇒ Either λ – 5 = 0 (or) λ = 5
⇒ λ + 1 = 0
⇒ λ = – 1
⇒ λ = 5 or – 1
Hence the given equation has coincident roots for λ = 5 or – 1.
