$\sin 2\theta=2\sin\theta\cos\theta$
$\Rightarrow \sin\theta\cos\theta=\large\frac{1}{2}$$\sin2\theta$
$\therefore \sec^2\theta+cosec^2\theta=\large\frac{4}{\sin^22\theta}$$\geq 4$
Also $\sec^2\theta.cosec^2\theta=\large\frac{4}{\sin^22\theta}$$\geq 4$
Thus required quadratic equation will be $x^2-tx+t=0$ where $t\geq 4$
Hence $x^2-5x+5=0$ can be the solution.
