Is C the answer as only one integer solution possible (0,0) rest all has more than one if you consider negative counter part

A) y = 2x, x=1y=2, x=2y=4
B) y = x/2 x2y1 x4y2
C) y=√5∗x x0y0
D) y=x+1 x0y1 x1y2 x3y4
E) y=1/x x1y1 and x(-1) y(-1)

hence C is the Answer

The answer is C

We can have multiple integer solutions for every equation except C
y=√5∗x in order to have integer solution we have to have x=√5

very sorry for your solution x =√5
which you stated above

x=0 and y= 0 is the only integer solution possible as √5 is not an integer.

Hope u can understand.

A) x=0,y=0 ; x = 1,y=2 ........
B) x=0,y=0 ; x=1, y=1/2 ..........
C) x = 0, y = 0 .. There is no other integral value of x which will produce integral value of y.
D) x=0,y=1 ; x=1,y=2
E) x=1,y=1 ; x=-1,y=-1

So, Answer C

We see that choices A, B and D will have infinitely many integer pair solutions. Choice E has two, namely (1, 1) and (-1, -1). However, choice C only has one, namely, (0, 0).

Answer: C
