**Correct Answer : C**

**Explanation : **

With 3 points we can describe a polynomial of degree 2 .

so our desired polynomial is of the form y=ax^{2 }+ bx + c.

plugging the above given values in the above quadratic equation we get

5 = a x 0 + b x 0 + c

=> c = 5.

6 = a x 1 x 1 + b x 1 +c

=> 6 = a+ b + c

but c = 5

so a + b = 1

also

8 = a x 2 x 2 + b x 2 +c

8 = 4a + 2b + 5

but a+b = 1 using this we get

b = 1/2 , a = 1/2, also c = 5

using these values we get value for P(3) as:

(1/2) x 3 x 3 + (1/2) x 3 +5

9/2 + 3/2 +5 = 1
