Toolbox:
  • If the given equation has $n$ arbitary constants, then its differential equation will be of $n^{th}$ order.
Given :$y=Ax+A^3$
This is an equation with only one arbitary constant.
differentiate w.r.t x
$\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=A+0$
$=>\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=A\qquad or \qquad \large\frac{dy}{dx}$$-A=0$
This is a linear differential equation .
Hence the differential equation is of order 1
The correct option is $C$
