Toolbox:
  • If the given equation has $n$ arbitrary constant,then the required differential equation will be of $n^{th}$ order
The differential equation representing the family of circles $x^2+(y-a)^2=a^2$ will be of order two.
The above equation has only one arbitary constans $'a'$
we know that if the equation contains $'n'$ arbitary constants, then the required differential equation will be of the $n^{th}$ order
Since the above equation has only one arbitrary constant, the differential equation representing this equation be of order one
Hence the above statment is $False$
