Q12. With initial condition  the solution of the differential equation,

 is

(A)

(B)

(C)

(D)

Solution

From the product rule [1] used to find the derivative of product of two or more functions,

Applying this to the above equation, we can be seen that,

Plugging this in and integrating both sides,

.

Using the initial condition , we can solve for the unknown , i.e.
.

So the solution to the differential equation is,

Based on the above, the right choice is (D) .
