for rolle’s theorem,
  1. f(x) should be continuous in (a, b)
  2. f(x) should be diffrentiable in (a, b)
  3. if f(a)= f(b) then there exist a point c in(a, b) such that f’(c) = 0
 
now as we see that point 1 & point 2 is true.
now coming to the 3rd point
f( – \sqrt3) = – 6\sqrt3 + 3 +4\sqrt3 – 2 = – 2\sqrt3 +1
f(\sqrt3) = 6\sqrt3 + 3 – 4\sqrt3 – 2 = 2\sqrt3 +1
but here f( – \sqrt3) is not equal to f(\sqrt3)
hence rolles theorem can’t be applied
I tink question is posted wrong.
