```										Dear Chitikala ,
Well , the catch is that the function is irrational and continuous on the domain . so you think how can a function be both irrational and continuous. if f(x) will have any other value than f(0) , it will leave all the rational points in between so won't be continuous, which implies it won't take any other value than f(0). so f(x) is a constant function over [-2009 , 2009] having the value f(0).
i.e f(-2009)=f(-2008)........f(0)= f(1)=f(2)=f(3)= ..............f(2009) , so
equation becomes   x2  + 2x + 1 = 0   . so , roots are 1 and 1 . therefore option 1) is correct.
