Q2. Are the following statements ‘True’ or ‘False’? Justify your answers.

(i) If the zeroes of a quadratic polynomial ax

(i) If the zeroes of a quadratic polynomial ax

^{2}+ bx + c are both positive, then a, b and c all have the same sign.**Solution: **

**Solution: **

(ii) If the graph of a polynomial intersects the x-axis at only one point, it cannot be a quadratic polynomial.

**Solution: **

(iii) If the graph of a polynomial intersects the x-axis at exactly two points, it need not be a quadratic polynomial.

**Solution: **

(iv) If two of the zeroes of a cubic polynomial are zero, then it does not have linear and constant terms.

**Solution: **

(v) If all the zeroes of a cubic polynomial are negative, then all the coefficients and the constant term of the polynomial have the same sign.

**Solution: **

(vi) If all three zeroes of a cubic polynomial x

^{3}+ ax^{2}– bx + c are positive, then at least one of a, b and c is non-negative.**Solution: **

(vii) The only value of k for which the quadratic polynomial kx

^{2}+ x + k has equal zeros is 1/2.**Solution: **
