Consider the given options
Option (a) If $p=x^n$ as $\Delta=0$ Since $C_1$ and $C_3$ are same
and considering option (b) if $p=n+1$
$\Rightarrow \Delta =0$
Since $R_1$ and $R_3$ are same if $x^5$ is taken out in common from $R_2$
P can be given by both $p = x^n$ and p = n+1
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
