Degree of the zero polynomial is

A) 0

B) 1

C) Any natural number

D) Not defined

Answer Verified Verified
The degree of the zero-degree polynomial (0) is not defined.

Detailed Answer:

The polynomial 0 has no terms at all, and is called a zero polynomial. Because the zero polynomial has no non-zero terms, the polynomial has no degree.

Hence, option (D) "Not defined" is the correct answer.

Note: Any constant value can be considered as a constant polynomial. However, the degree of non-zero constant polynomials is 0.
