  • The general solution of a differential equation is a relation between dependent and independent variables having $'n'$ arbitary constant.
  • A general solution may have more than one form but arbitary constants must be the same.
Given $ x^2+y^2-2ay=0$-----(1)
Differentiating w.r.t x to x we get
Dividing through out by 2 we get
or $x+y \large\frac{dy}{dx}$$-a \large \frac{dy}{dx}=0$
Substitute the value a in equ (1)
$x^2+y^2=2y \bigg(\large\frac{x+y(\Large\frac{dy}{dx})}{\Large\frac{dy}{dx}}\bigg)$
Hence option $D$ is the correct answer
