d. III only

z, such that z^2<9 implies that z can be -2, -1, 0, 1 and 2

I and II are not defined for z=0 and z=-2 as the denominator = 0
III is defined for all the above mentioned values of z

hope i didnt screw it up somewhere.... :)

I think III is also not defined. If z=-1, denominator becomes 0.

so maybe the answer is a. none

sorry, i don't have the oa for this. another kaplan question here.

none.

basically it means the denominator can't be 0 and find z.

The question asks which of the options gives a defined answer for z^2<9
If z^2<9, then -3<z<3, i.e z can be -2,-1,0, 1 and 2

For each of the options, if the denominator=0, then the term is not defined.
For z+1/z, denom z cannot be 0, which is one of the values for z
For (z-4)/ z^2-4z+4, denom z^2-4z+4 cannot be zero, which means z cant be 2, which is one of the values for z
Finally, for 18/ z^2 -4z-5, z^2 -4z-5 cannot be zero which means z cant be 5 or -1. Since -1 is one of the possible values for z, this term also cannot be defined by z.

So the answer is none.
