$2a^{2}+a-1=0$
We get the factor as:
a=-1, a=0.5

$12b^{2}-17b+6=0$
Solving, we get the factor as,
b= 1.5, b= .75

Hence, b>a
Option A is correct option.

Soving the quadratic equations we get,
$a^{2}-5a+6=0$
i.e (a-2)(a-3)=0
i.e a=2, a=3

$2b^{2}-13b+21=0$
i.e (b-3.5)(b-3)=0
i.e b= 3.5 and b=3

Hence, we can deduce that $a\leq b$
Therefore, option B is correct.

$a^{2}+5a+6=0$
i.e (a+2)(a+3)=0
i.e a=-2, a=-3

.$b^{2}+7b+12=0$
i.e (b+4)(b+3)=0
i.e b=-4, b=-3

Hence, we can deduce that $a \geq b$.
Therefore, option E is correct.

$16a^{2}=1$
Solving we get, a=-.25, a=+.25

$3b^{2}+7b+2=0$
Solving we get, b= -2. b = -1/3

Hence, a>b. Option D is correct.

We can easily solve equation I to get a = -1
But we cannot solve $b^{2}=\pm4$. Square root of negative number is not a real number.
Hence, we cannot find a value of b. Therefore, we cannot establish a relationship between a and b.

$p^2-7p+12 = 0$
$(p-3)(p-4) = 0$
$p = 3, 4$

$q^2-3q+2 = 0$
$(q-1)(q-2) = 0$
$q = 1, 2$

$\therefore p > q$

$12p^2-7p+1 = 0$
$(4p-1)(3p-1) = 0$
$p = \frac{1}{3}, \frac{1}{4}$

$6q^2-7q+2 = 0$
$(2q-1)(3q-2) = 0$
$q = \frac{1}{2}, \frac{2}{3}$

$\therefore p < q$

$p^2+12p+35 = 0$
$(p+5)(p+7) = 0$
$p = -5, -7$

$2q^2+22q+56 = 0$
$q^2+11q+28 = 0$
$(q+4)(q+7) = 0$
$q = -4, -7$

As we can see $p$ can be greater than, less than or equal to $q$. No relationship can be established between $p$ and $q$ and hence, option E is the right answer.
