if a,b are roots of the quadratic equation 2 x 2 +6x+b=0 (b a/b+b/a is less than? A.2 B.-2

```							I guess B.As a nd b are roots of the equation, 2x2+6x+b=0, so we have two equatins:a+b = -(coeff of x)/(coeff of x2) = -3    …...(i)ab = (constant)/(coeff of x2) = b/2   …....(ii)So, from (ii) we have b(a-1/2)=0, as b cannot be zero (since root and putting x=0 we donot get LHS=RHS) so a-1/2=0 and thus a=1/2.Putting this value in (i) we get b = -3.5 Now, (a/b)+(b/a) = (a2+b2)/ab = [(a+b)2-2ab]/ab   ….......(iii)Putting in values of (a+b) and ab we get (iii)= -7.14, less than -2.Cheers!!
