Answer :

Let us assume that the parabola be y2 = 4ax.


The parametric equations of the points on the parabola are (at2, 2at).


If we assume the points of extremities of the double ordinate of the parabola (at2, 2at) and (at2, - 2at).


We know that the point of trisection is the point in between these point at a ratio of 2:1 or 1:2.


Let us take the ratio to be 1:2.


Let us assume the point of trisection be (x, y).





Consider y2,






The locus of point of trisection is parabola.


The correct option is C
