Only 5

sqrt(5) is aprox 2.2...

so 2-2.2 will give you a negative number, and sqrt(neg numb) is an imaginary number.

Clear winner 5

To make the equation an nreal number the value under the roots should be negative.

This can be done only with 5

Hence E

Easy one... E. 5.

SQRT(5) = 2.xx

SQRT(2-2.xx) = SQRT(-ve number) = imaginary.
