Correct Answer - Option 1 : √2


  • If in a hyperbola the length of the transverse axis 2a is equal to the length of the conjugate axis 2b, the hyperbola is called a rectangular hyperbola.
  • x2 − y2 = a2 is the general form of rectangular hyperbola. If the asymptotes are x and y axis, then the equation is xy = c2
  • The rectangular hyperbola is the hyperbola for which the axes (or asymptotes) are perpendicular, or with eccentricity √2
