A. x-y

B. x+y

C. (x-y)(x+y)

D. \((x-y)^2\)

E. \((x+y)^2\)


\(\frac{m+(x+y)^2}{2}\) = \(x^2+y^2\)

=>m+\((x+y)^2\)= \(2x^2+2y^2\)
=>m = \(2x^2+2y^2 - x^2-2xy-y^2\)
=> m = \((x-y)^2\)

IMO, D

E. \((x+y)^2\)


\(\frac{m + x^2 + 2xy + y^2}{2} = x^2 + y^2\)

Or, \(m + x^2 + y^2 + 2xy = 2x^2 + 2y^2\)

Or, \(m = x^2 + y^2 - 2xy\)

Or, \(m = ( x - y )^2\), Answer must be (D)
