A
742

B
78

C
1142
loader
D
2
loader

Solution

The correct option is A $$\dfrac{7}{4\sqrt{2}}$$
we have ,$$2y.\dfrac{dy}{dx}=1\Rightarrow\dfrac{dy}{dx}]_{P(2+t^2,t)}=\dfrac{1}{2t}=1$$
$$\Rightarrow t=\dfrac{1}{2}$$
$$\therefore P\left(\dfrac{9}{4},\dfrac{1}{2}\right)$$
So, shortest distance
$$=\dfrac{\left|\dfrac{9}{4}-\dfrac{2}{4}\right|}{\sqrt{2}}=\dfrac{7}{4\sqrt{2}}$$
