Dear Vaibhav


we know that tangent on ellipse is


  y=mx+ √(a2m2+b2)


 simplify it


 m2( x2 -a2 ) -2mxy + y2 -b2=0


m1 +m2  = tanθ1 +tan θ2 = 2xy/(x2 -a2 )  ...............1


m1.m2 =tanθ1tan θ2 = y2 -b2/(x2 -a2 )......................2


divide 1 and 2


1/ tanθ1 +1/tan θ2 =2xy/y2 -b2


k=2xy/y2 -b2


2xy =k(y2 -b2)


so option c is correct
