(A) a hyperbola

(B) a pair of straight lines
(C) a point

(D) none of the foregoing curves

Do you really need a hint? Try it first!

It cannot be a straight line because Straight line are linear equation of the form. $ax+by+c=0$.

So it may be a circle or a point if radius is zero, But when we generalized it to the standard form of circle we get negative radius. so it cant be either of this one.

Hint: Stanrd form of circle is $(x-h)^{2}+(y-k)^{2}=r^{2}$.

Now lets try to factorize to find the product of two linear equations so as we can verify the pair of straight line.

$a x^{2}+2 h x y+b y^{2}+2 g x+2 f y+c=0$
This equation represents two straight lines, if $\Delta=a b c+2 f g h-a t^{2}-b g^{2}-c h^{2}=0$
or $\left|\begin{array}{lll}{a} & {h} & {g} \\ {h} & {b} & {f} \\ {g} & {f} & {c}\end{array}\right|=0$.

## I.S.I. & C.M.I. Program

Indian Statistical Institute and Chennai Mathematical Institute offer challenging bachelor’s program for gifted students. These courses are: B.Stat and B.Math program in I.S.I., B.Sc. Math in C.M.I.
The entrances to these programs are far more challenging than usual engineering entrances. Cheenta offers an intense, problem-driven program for these two entrances. ## ISI MStat Entrance 2020 Problems and Solutions
