General Instructions:1. All questions are compulsory. 2. The question paper consists of thirty questions divided into four sections A,B,C and D. Section A comparises of ten questions of 01 mark each, Section B comparises of five questions of 02 marks each, Section C comparises of ten questions of 03 marks each and Section D comparises of five questions of 06 marks each. 3. All questions of Section A are to be answered in one word, one sentence or as per the exact requierement of the question. 4. There is no overall choice, however , an internal choice has been provided in one question of 02 marks each, three questions of 03 marks each and two question of 06 marks each. You have to attempt only one of the aiternatives in all such questions. 5. In question on construction, drawing should be neat and exactly as per the given measurement. 6. Use of calculators is not permitted. SECTION A [1X10=10 MARKS] Find the Polynomial P(x), whose zeros are 1, -1, and 2. Write the Euclids Division Lemma.
