Dear student,

The eccentricity of an ellipse is defined as the ratio of the distance between any point in the ellipse and the focus and distance between point and a fixed line called directrix.


            e = distance between P and F/distance between P and line D (Directrix)

Formula for eccentricity :      

               Formula for calculating e is

                b2 = (a2)(e2-1)    So e2- 1 = b2/a2     or e2 = b2/a2 +1 

                e = √(b2/a2+1)

                Eccenticity = square root of square of semi minor axis divided by squares of semi major axis

eccentricity of hyperbola = 1+b2/a2 = e         ..............1

eccentricity of conjugate = 1+a2/b2 = ec2        ..................2    (ec = eccentricity of conjugate hyperbola)


from these two equatns , ec  = e/(e2-1)1/2            ......................3

f(f(e)) = e                          (n = 2 even)

f(f(f(e))) = e/(e2-1)1/2       (n = 3 odd)


now , if n = even then

integral ede = e2/2 lim from 1 to 3

                  =4                                   (A)

if n = odd then

 integral  ede/(e2-1)1/2  lim 1 to 3

      = (e2-1)1/2          lim 1 to 3

       =2root2                                     (D)


hence option A,D are correct ....
