Dear Pooja,

correct option is c)

solution :

it is given that the roots of the two equations are reciprocals

n1 =  1/ m1  and   n2 = 1/ m2

m1 and m2 are the roots of

a1x2 +b1x +c1=0

m1 + m2 = -(b1/a1)          m1*m2= c1/a1

and n1 and n2 are roots of a2x2 +b2x +c2=0  -------1

n1+n2= 1/m1+1/m2 = (m1+m2)/(m1*m2)=-(b1/c1)  ----- sum of roots

n1*n2=  1/(m1*m2)=a1/c1-----------product of roots

now we will form the equation as x2 +(sum of roots)x +product of roots =0

x2   + (b1/c1) x +a1/c1 =0

multiply by c1 we get

c1x2   b1x +a1 =0  -------2 this is same as the equation 1 now comparing we get

we get   c1 a2  ,    b= b2    ,  a= c2

from this we get c1/a2 = 1        b1/b2= 1    a1/c2 =1   thus equating all three we get

 a1/ c2= b1/ b2= c1/ a2    so option c
