    Answer:

    the correct option is B. 2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    As given,

    x + \frac{b}{na} = ± √b²-4ac

    ⇒x = –\frac{b}{na} ± √b²-4ac

    As e know that the quadratic formula is

    x = \frac{-b + or - \sqrt{b^{2} - 4ac }  }{2a}

    So , by comparing with the formula

    we get

    n = 2

    So, the correct option is B. 2
