Ans:
f(x) = x^{2}, x = I
f(x) = \frac{-k(x^{2}-4)}{2-x}, x \neq I
f(x) = -k(x+2), x \neq I
For function to be continuous
\lim_{h\rightarrow 0}f(I-h) = I^{2} = \lim_{h\rightarrow 0}f(I+h)
\lim_{h\rightarrow 0}-k(2+I-h) = I^{2} = \lim_{h\rightarrow 0}-k(2+I+h)
k = \frac{-I^{2}}{I+2}
I = Integer
Cheers!
