A quadratic polynomial,


A quadratic polynomial, the sum of whose zeroes is 0 and one zero is 3, is

(a) $x^{2}-9$

(b) $x^{2}+9$

(c) $x^{2}+3$

(d) $x^{2}-3$


Since $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are the zeros of the quadratic polynomials such that


If one of zero is 3 then





Substituting $\beta=-3$ in $\alpha+\beta=0$ we get



Let S and P denote the sum and product of the zeros of the polynomial respectively then



$P=\alpha \beta$

$P=3 \times-3$


Hence, the required polynomials is

$=\left(x^{2}-S x+P\right)$

$=\left(x^{2}-0 x-9\right)$


Hence, the correct choice is (a)
