    Exercise 4.1

    Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)

    Question1. Which of the following is a quadratic equation?

     

    Solution: (d)

    Explanation:

    An equation which is of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0, a ≠ 0 is called a quadratic equation.

    x3 - x2 = x3 -3x2 + 3x - 1

    ⟹-x2 + 3x2 - 3x + 1 = 0

    ⟹ 2x2 - 3x + 1 = 0

    This equation is not of the form ax2+ bx + c, a ≠ 0. Thus, the equation is a quadratic equation.

    Question2. Which of the following is not a quadratic equation?

    This equation is not of the form ax2 + bx + c, a ≠ 0.

    Thus, the equation is not quadratic.

    Question3. Which of the following equations has 2 as a root?

    (a) x2 -4x + 5 = 0       

    (b) x2 + 3x -12 = 0

    (c) 2x2 -7x + 6 = 0     

    (d) 3x2 - 6x -2 = 0

    Solution: (c)

    Explanation:

    If k is one of the root of any quadratic equation then x = k

    i.e., k satisfies the equation ak2 + bk + c = 0.

    i.e., f(k) = ak2 + bk + c = 0,

    (a) Putting x = 2 in x2 - 4x + 5, we get

    (2)2 - 4(2) + 5 = 4 - 8 + 5 = 1≠0.

    So, x = 2 is not a root of x2 - 4x + 5 = 0.

    (b) Putting x = 2 in x2 + 3x - 12, we get

    (2)2 + 3(2) - 12 = 4 + 6 – 12 = –2 ≠ 0

    So, x = 2 is not a root of x2 + 3x – 12 ≠ 0.

    (c) Putting x = 2 in 2x2 – 7x + 6, we get

    2(2)2 – 7(2) + 6 = 2 (4) – 14+ 6 = 8 – 14 + 6 = 14 – 14 = 0

    So, x = 2 is root of the equation 2x2 – 7x + 6 = 0.

    (d) Putting x = 2 in 3x2 –6x –2, we get

    3(2)2 –6(2) –2 = 12 –12 –2 = –2 ≠ 0

    So, x = 2 is not a root of 3x2 – 6x –2 = 0.

    k = 2

    Question5. Which of the following equations has the sum of its roots as 3?

    So, option (b) is correct.

    Question6. Value(s) of k for which the quadratic equation 2x2kx + k = 0 has equal roots is/are

    (a) 0  

    (b) 4  

    (c) 8  

    (d) 0, 8

    Solution: (d)

    Explanation:

    For a quadratic equation of the form, ax2 + bx + c = 0, a ≠ 0 to have two equal real roots, its discriminant must be equal to zero, i.e., D = b2 –4ac = 0

    Given equation is 2x2kx + k = 0

    On comparing with ax2 + bx + c = 0, we get

    a = 2, b = – k and c = k

    For equal roots, the discriminant must be zero.

    i.e., D = b2 – 4ac = 0

    ⟹ (– k)2 – 4 (2) k = 0

    k2 – 8k = 0

    k (k – 8) = 0

    Thus, k = 0, 8

    Hence, the required values of k are 0 and 8.

    Question10. Which of the following equations has no real roots?

    Hence, the equation has two distinct real roots.

    Question11. (x2 + l)2x2 = 0 has

    (a) four real roots       

    (b) two real roots        

    (c) no real roots          

    (d) one real root

    Solution: (c)
