  • If an equation has n arbitary constants. then its differential equation will be of $n^{th}$ order
  • Equation of a straight line pasing through the orgin is $y=mx$
Let us consider the equation of a stright line $y=mx$, which passes through the orgin.
Now differentiation with respect to x we get,
Substituting this for m in $y=mx$ we get
or $xdy-ydx=0$
Hence the correct option is $C$
