The correct option is A False Any polynomial of degree ‘n’ has at most ‘n’ real roots that means the graph of the polynomial will cut the X axis at a maximum of n points. For example x2−2x+1=0 has two roots (both coincident) but the graph of y=x2−2x+1 touches the X-axis in just one point.
Thus, it is not necessary that a polynomial of degree n must cut the X axis at n points.
