**Hint:**Before attempting this question, one should have prior knowledge about the quadratic equation as in the above equation is a quadratic equation of degree 2 so this equation can easily be solved by the quadratic formula $x = \dfrac{{ - b \pm \sqrt {{b^2} - 4ac} }}{{2a}}$ and also remember to let ${p^2}$ as the perfect square of the given equation and use the algebraic identities ${\left( {a \pm b} \right)^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} \pm 2ab$.

**Complete step-by-step solution:**The given quadratic equation is: ${x^2} + ax + a + 1 = 0$

So, by applying quadratic formula we get

$x = \dfrac{{ - a \pm \sqrt {{a^2} - 4(a + 1)} }}{{2a}}$

= $x = \dfrac{{ - a \pm \sqrt {{a^2} - 4a - 4} }}{{2a}}$

So, to get the integral values of a the expression ${a^2} - 4a - 4$ need to be a perfect square

So ${a^2} - 4a - 4 = {p^2}$

Here ${p^2}$ is a perfect square

\[

{a^2} - 4a - 4 - {p^2} = 0 \\

{a^2} - 4a = 4 + {p^2} \\

{a^2} - 4a + 4 = 4 + 4 + {p^2} \\

\]

Here 4 is added to both left- and right-hand sides

As we know that ${\left( {a \pm b} \right)^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} \pm 2ab$

Therefore ${(a - 2)^2} = 8 + {p^2}$

Let the value of p=1

$

{(a - 2)^2} = 8 + 1 \\

{(a - 2)^2} = 9 \\

a - 2 = \pm 3 \\

$

Let a – 2 = 3

This gives a = 5

And a – 2 = -3

This gives a = - 1

So, the options A and D are correct

**We can further put the ${p^2} = 4,9,16..$ and other perfect squares but the answer will be irrational which is irreverent for us.**

**Note:**In the above question to approach the solution we used the quadratic formula i.e. $x = \dfrac{{ - b \pm \sqrt {{b^2} - 4ac} }}{{2a}}$ where a, b, and c is the real number of an quadratic equation than to get the integral roots of a the determinant ($\sqrt {{b^2} - 4ac} $) must to be a perfect square so we put $\sqrt {{b^2} - 4ac} = {p^2}$ where ${p^2}$ is a perfect square.
