# ISI MStat 2018 PSA Problem 12 | Sequence of positive numbers This is a problem from ISI MStat 2018 PSA Problem 12 based on Sequence of positive numbers

## Sequence of positive numbers - ISI MStat Year 2018 PSA Question 12

Let , be a sequence of positive numbers such that for all n, and Let be the polynomial and suppose has no real roots for every n . Let and be the roots of the polynomial What can you say about ?

• (A) and are not real
• (B) and are real.
• (C) and are real.
• (D) and are not real

### Key Concepts

Sequence

Discriminant

ISI MStat 2018 PSA Problem 12

Introduction to Real Analysis by Bertle Sherbert

## Try with Hints

Write the discriminant. Use the properties of the sequence .

Note that as "> has no real root so discriminant is "> so "> and ">'s are positive and decreasing so "> . So , what can we say about a ?

Therefore we can say that hence discriminant of P  , must be strictly negative so option D.
