Solution

The correct option is C (1,0)
Let z=α is the real root of the equation
α3+(3+2i)α+(1+ia)=0
(α3+3α1)+(2α+a)i=0 
As α is a real root of the equation, the real & the imaginary part of the equation must be zero.
a+2α=0α=a2
so using value of α we get, a383a21=0a3+12a+8=0

Now, Let f(x)=a3+12a+8
f(a)=3a2+12>0  aR 
f is an increasing function  xR
f(2)=(2)3+12(2)+8<0
f(1)=(1)3+12(1)+8<0
f(0)=(0)3+12(0)+8>0
f(1)=(1)3+12(1)+8>0
f(2)=(2)3+12(2)+8>0

a lies in the interval (1,0)
