2. Polynomial is a continuous function everywhere. An odd polynomial is a
polynomial with odd degree as the leading term and an even polynomial is a
polynomial with even degree as the leading term. By using the fact that
polynomial is a continuous function everywhere and investigate them at
(infinity) show/argue that an even polynomial can have no real root whereas
an odd polynomial must have at least one real root !
