Solution

## The correct option is C Statement 1 is true and statement 2 is false As per factor theorem, when a polynomial P(x) of degree greater than or equal to one exists such that P(a) = 0, x – a is the factor of the polynomial P(x). Conversley, if x – a is a factor of the polynomial P(x) then P(a) = 0.  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Related Videos   Factor Theorem
