$a^{2}+5a+6=0$
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.

$6p^2+5p+1 = 0$
$(2p+1)(3p+1) = 0$
$p = -\frac{1}{2}, -\frac{1}{3}$

$20q^2+9q+1 = 0$
$(4q+1)(5q+1) = 0$
$q = -\frac{1}{4}, -\frac{1}{5}$

$p < q$

$x^2 = 49$
$x = -7, 7$

$y^2-4y-21 = 0$
$(y-7)(y+3) = 0$
$y = -3, 7$

Hence, pairs of (x,y) are (-7,-3), (-7,7), (7,-3) and (7,7). Hence, in some x is less than y and in some x is greater than y. Thus no relation can be established.

I : 4$x^{2}$ + 15x + 14 = 0

=> 4$x^{2}$ + 8x + 7x + 14 = 0

=> 4x ( x + 2) + 7 ( x + 2) = 0

=> (4x + 7) (x + 2) = 0

=> x = -7/4 , -2

II : 6$y^{2}$ + 10y = 0

=> y (6y + 10) = 0

=> y = 0 , -5/3

Since, 0 > -7/4 , -2 & -5/3 > -7/4 , -2

=> y > x

$3x^{2} + 23x + 44 = 0$.
$x=\frac{-23\pm\sqrt{23^{2}-4\times44\times3}}{2\times3}$
$x=\frac{-23\pm1}{6}$.
$x=\frac{-11}{3},-4$.
$3y^{2} + 20y + 33 =0$.
$y=\frac{-20\pm\sqrt{20^{2}-4\times33\times3}}{2\times3}$.
$y=\frac{-20\pm2}{6}$.
$y=-3,\frac{(-11)}{3}$.
Clearly,
x <= y
Hence, Option D is correct.

Applying the operation : Eqn(II) $\times 8$ – Eqn(I) $\times 5$

=> $(40x – 40x) + (48y – 35y) = (792 – 675)$

=> $13y = 117$

=> $y = \frac{117}{13} = 9$

Putting in Eqn (I), we get :

=> $8x + 63 = 135$

=> $8x = 135 – 63 = 72$

=> $x = \frac{72}{8} = 9$

From Eqn(III)

=> $9 \times 9 + 8z = 121$

=> $8z = 121 – 81 = 40$

=> $z = \frac{40}{8} = 5$

$\therefore x = y > z$

I.$3x^{2} – 13x – 10 = 0$

=> $3x^2 – 15x + 2x – 10 = 0$

=> $3x (x – 5) + 2 (x – 5) = 0$

=> $(x – 5) (3x + 2) = 0$

=> $x = 5 , \frac{-2}{3}$

II.$3y^{2} + 10y – 8 = 0$

=> $3y^2 + 12y – 2y – 8 = 0$

=> $3y (y + 4) – 2 (y + 4) = 0$

=> $(y + 4) (3y – 2) = 0$

=> $y = -4 , \frac{2}{3}$

$\therefore$ No relation can be established.

I.$2x^{2} + 21x + 10 = 0$

=> $2x^2 + x + 20x + 10 = 0$

=> $x (2x + 1) + 10 (2x + 1) = 0$

=> $(x + 10) (2x + 1) = 0$

=> $x = -10 , \frac{-1}{2}$

II.$3y^{2} + 13y + 14 = 0$

=> $3y^2 + 6y + 7y + 14 = 0$

=> $3y (y + 2) + 7 (y + 2) = 0$

=> $(y + 2) (3y + 7) = 0$

=> $y = -2 , \frac{-7}{3}$

$\therefore$ No relation can be established.

Average of a and b is less than the average of b and c by 1

=> $\frac{b + c}{2} – \frac{a + b}{2} = 1$

=> $(b + c) – (a + b) = 2$

=> $c – a = 2$

$\because$ Difference between c and a is positive.

=> $c > a$

$\therefore$ Quantity I > Quantity II
