Answer :

Given equation is 16x2 + y2 + 8xy - 74x - 78y + 212 = 0 We know that for ax2 + 2hxy + by2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 is a parabola if h2 = ab and abc + 2fgh - af2 - bg2 - ch2≠0

Here a = 16, b = 1, h = 4, g = - 37, f = - 39, c = 212.

abc + 2fgh - af2 - bg2 - ch2 = (16)(1)(212) + (2)(- 39)(- 37)(4) - (16)(- 39)2 - (1)(- 37)2 - (212)(4)2

abc + 2fgh - af2 - bg2 - ch2 = 3392 + 11544 - 24336 - 1369 - 3392

abc + 2fgh - af2 - bg2 - ch2 = - 14161

h2 = (4)2

h2 = 16

h2 = (16)(1)

h2 = ab

The given curve is parabola.

The correct option is B
