If line cuts the parabola then there will be two points
& if line touches the parabola then there will be only one
point.
Now,
Put y= 1-x in the equation of parabola
1-x = x- x^2
x^2 -2 x+ 1= 0
when solving quadratic
(x-1)^2 = 0
x = 1
Hence y= 0
As we see that there is only one solution
So this will be a tangent to parabola at (1, 0)
