# Choose the correct answer from the given four options in the following questions:

If the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial $ a x^{2}+b x+c, c

0 $ are equal, then

**(A)** $ c $ and $ a $ have opposite signs

**(B)** $ c $ and $ b $ have opposite signs

**(C)** $ c $ and $ a $ have the same sign

**(D)** $ c $ and $ b $ have the same sign

Given:

The zeroes of the quadratic polynomial $ax^2+bx+c,\ c\ ≠ 0$ are equal.

To do:

We have to find the sign of the roots of the quadratic polynomial.

Solution:

Given that the zeros of the quadratic polynomial $ax^2+bx+c,\ c\ ≠ 0$ are equal.

$\Rightarrow$ Value of the discriminant $( D)$ has to be zero for equal roots.

$\Rightarrow b^2-4ac=0$

$\Rightarrow b^2=4ac$

Since $b^2$ cannot be negative, thus, R.H.S. can also be never negative.

Therefore, $a$ and $c$ must have the same sign.
