Ques: Which of the following is a multinomial?


A. 6xy
B. Examples of Multinomial
C. 3y5 + 3y6 - 3
D. Examples of Multinomial

Step 2: Here, 6xy, Examples of Multinomial , and Examples of Multinomial are the monomial expressions as they have only single terms in the expression.
Step 3: So, the expression 3y5 + 3y6 - 3 is a polynomial with the sum of the terms.
