A)
Toolbox:
  • 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,
$y=mx$
$\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=m$
Substituting this for m in $y=mx$ we get
$y=\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$.x$
$=>y.dx=x.dy$
or $xdy-ydx=0$
Hence the correct option is $C$
