The answer for this item is letter "A. 2nd degree trinomial" where the highest exponent of the variable is 2 thus, 2nd degree. Each of the second and third term is also in 2nd degree because the first degree variables are multiplied to each other. This is trinomial because the expression is composed of three terms
