• −1

• 2

• −2

#### Solution

Let alpha = sqrt5 and beta= -sqrt5 be the given zeros and y  be the third zero of x3 + x2 − 5x − 5 = 0 then

By using alpha +beta + y = (-text{coefficient of }x^2)/(text{coefficient of } x^3)

alpha + beta + y = (+(+1))/1

alpha + beta + y = -1

By substituting alpha = sqrt5 and beta= -sqrt5 in alpha +beta+y = -1

cancel(sqrt5) - cancel(sqrt5) + y = -1

 y = -1

Hence, the correct choice is(b)
